Westborough – As part of its outreach to residents, Westborough Youth and Family Services (WYFS) will be participating in National Depression Screening Day, Thursday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. The event is offered in association with the Assabet Valley Pastoral Counseling Center.
Interested residents are asked to contact WYFS to schedule a free, confidential screening. They will then be given an appointment time to go to the WYFS offices at the Forbes Municipal Building, 45 West Main St. where they will fill out a questionnaire and be given an opportunity to discuss their answers with a counselor.
The screening is open to residents of all ages. For children up to age 18, a parent must be present. For children up to age 13, the parent will be asked to complete the questionnaire. For children 13 and older, both the parent and child will complete questionnaires. Online screening is also available at www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/WESTBOROUGHYFS.
