National Depression Screening Day
In support of National Depression Screening Day on Thursday, Oct. 5, University Counseling Services is offering students free and confidential in-person and online screenings for depression.
Screenings are a good way to find out if depression might be the cause of feelings like prolonged sadness, anxiety, irritability, loss of pleasure, hopelessness and worthlessness, and even physical pain.
Free one-on-one confidential screenings with a counselor will be available for depression. Feedback provided after a screening is informational, not diagnostic. Based on screening results, the mental health professional may recommend a more comprehensive evaluation. Screening locations are:
- Karrmann Library – Conference room 212 from 9 a.m.-11 a.m.
- Bridgeway – Multipurpose room 1 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
- Ullsvik Hall 1st floor Presentation room – 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m.
- MPSC, Dean of Students suite – 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
- 220 Royce Hall – 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
For those who cannot attend an in-person screening, free online mental health screenings are available any time for depression and other conditions.
- For students, University Counseling Services offers online self-evaluation.
- Confidential, short-term counseling is always available to students at no-cost. Contact University Counseling Services at 608-342-1865 or visit uwplatt.edu/counseling.
