Westborough – Westborough Youth and Family Services, together with Assabet Valley Pastoral Counseling, will once again offer a free and anonymous screening opportunity on National Depression Screening Day, Thursday, Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 45 W. Main St., room 21 (second floor). The purpose of this annual program is to provide education, raise awareness, and screen for four common and treatable mental health disorders. The screening will provide information related to major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. All printed materials are free of charge and the public is welcome to come and learn more about mental health.
The screening will provide an opportunity to complete a written screening questionnaire, discuss the results with a mental health counselor, receive a list of service providers in the area, browse through pamphlets and brochures, and access information about helping friends and loved ones who may be experiencing a mental health challenge. Allow about 30 minutes for your screening appointment.
