National Depression Screening Day (October 11, 2018)
Thursday, October 11 is National Depression Screening Day. This year’s theme is “Reach Out,” which encourages individuals who might be dealing with depression to seek support from their social networks and health professionals. The goal of this effort is to emphasize the importance of screening for and the early detection of depression, which is one of the most common mental health concerns. YSAM and the ASAP Center work to increase the use of prevention approaches for depression, suicide, self-harm, and substance abuse in a wide range of healthcare settings.
