National Depression Screening Day is Oct. 6

National Depression Screening Day is Thursday, Oct. 6, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Wellness Center, Room 9, Toner Student Center.

Students can fill out a short questionnaire and meet briefly with a counselor to assess symptoms of mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar).

Untreated mood symptoms can lead to missed classes, poor performance, social isolation, and other missed opportunities in students’ college careers. Understanding the signs and symptoms of mood issues can assist students to seek treatment that will promote their well-being and enable them to gain maximum benefit from their investment in themselves and a SMU education.

Students can register to win a $100 gift certificate to the SMU bookstore at the screening.
