National Depression Screening

Got the Blues? You Are Not Alone

Ever feel like you are the only one who is sad in a world of happy people? Everyone experiences stress, sadness and anxiety from time to time – it’s part of life. These feelings often happen when you a lose a job, children move away from home, during divorce, with a death in the family, or during retirement. But when changes in mood and behavior interfere with one’s ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities, it could be a sign of depression.

As a National Depression Screening Site,  Summit Research Network gives adults and children the opportunity to take a free, anonymous questionnaire assessing their risk for depression and anxiety disorders and provides referral information for treatment. Getting a depression screening could be your first step in understanding depression and the options available to you.

Summit Research Network is offering free depression screenings all year long for adults and children as a part of Screening for Mental Health, Inc. To schedule an appointment, call (503) 228-CARE (2273).
