CollegeResponse's National Depression Screening Day (NDSD):
October 9, 2014
Research reports that 45 percent of students felt hopeless at least once during the past year (ACHA 2011). NDSD raises awareness and educates students about the signs and symptoms of mood and anxiety disorders, as well as connecting at-risk students to the resources they need.
The screenings – offered online or in-person at NDSD events -- are anonymous and confidential. The brief screening helps students get help if needed and referrals are tailored for the campus.
