October 7, 2011 - Memorial Health System Depression Screening Day To Be Held October 14
Memorial Health System’s psychiatric services staff will be sponsoring a depression screening day on Friday, October 14 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at Marietta Memorial Hospital.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), major depression is a serious medical illness affecting 15 million American adults or approximately 5 to 8 percent of the adult population in a given year. Without treatment, the frequency of depressive illness as well as the severity of symptoms tends to increase over time.
Participants can stop by and complete a depression self inventory and have their results interpreted by our professional staff. Resources on treatment options and informational handouts will also be available. Free refreshments will be served. For more information contact Carla Vickers at (740) 374-1506.
