Today is National Depression Screening Day

Today is National Depression Screening Day in the USA. What a great idea!

To my knowledge, I don't think we have this event in the UK, but maybe you know if we do? What about my regular blog readers, do they have this day in your country?

Depression is a common mental health issue and no doubt you may have suffered with this illness or know someone close to you who has had or has depression?

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has an excellent website and a link to test yourself to see if you might have depression...try it if you think you do. Copy and Paste this into your browser.



The website test is very quick and can also check for Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar, PTSD, Alcohol Misuse and Adolescent Depression.

At the end of the screening the site can put you in touch with useful resources and advice on what to do next.

If you do have a score which indicates that you may have a mental illness then do seek help from a medical practitioner (GP) or contact a counsellor or therapist who is trained to help you.
