ABILENE, Texas – Not all wounds are physical. Depression, PTSD and related mood disorders cannot be seen on an x-ray. Yet mental illness is just as painful. And the stigma associated with the disease often prevents many from seeking help and getting treated. Depression Screening Day gives people access to an anonymous, validated, screening questionnaire and provides referral information for treatment.

The McMurry University Counseling Center will conduct Depression Screening Thursday, Sept. 29, in the Garrison Campus Center from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Also, the Counseling Center will be sponsoring Mental Illness Awareness Week from Oct. 2-8 on campus in conjunction with other mental health advocates from across the country who have joined together to put on many activities nationwide to raise awareness about the week. Mental Illness Awareness Week was established in 1990 by the US Congress in recognition of NAMI’s efforts to raise mental health awareness.

Those who participate will fill out a brief questionnaire and have the opportunity to ask questions, pick up a brochure, and get free giveaways. For more information please feel free to contact Karen Douglas, Assistant Director of Counseling & Career Services at (325) 793-4880.
