If you think you might be depressed, you can soon go to a free screening to get checked out.
Several mental health agencies in our area are joining forces to put on the screenings later this month at the Blasco Library in Erie. Trained therapists will conduct the one-on-one screenings. Experts say the goal is to raise awareness and to encourage people to get help.
Denise Kolivoski, Executive Director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness said, "We want folks to come forward to screen to see if they are at risk for certain mental illness so they can take care of their illness by providing help and hope to those who really need it in our community."
The two free depression screenings are scheduled for April 23. The sessions will be from 10am-11:30am and 5:00pm-7:00pm.
No registration is required.
