These are common symptoms of depression.  Millions of people struggle with depression and most of us will either experience it or know someone who struggles with depression.  In an effort to normalize this issue and increase awareness about depression, Counseling Services is sponsoring the National Depression Screening Day Information Table on Wednesday, October 5, from 10:00-2:00pm in the Campus Life Center (2nd floor lobby).  Participants can learn more about depression by picking up brochures, completing a self assessment, taking an online survey or viewing an educational video.  Counselors will also be available to talk with participants.  For further information, contact Counseling Services at extension 5195 or come by CLC Suite 224.
