Got the Blues? You Are Not Alone
Ever feel like you are the only one who is sad in a world of happy people? Everyone experiences stress, sadness and anxiety from time to time – it's part of life. These feelings often happen when you a lose a job, children move away from home, during divorce, with a death in the family, or during retirement. But when changes in mood and behavior interfere with one’s ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities, it could be a sign of depression. National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) gives people the opportunity to take a free, anonymous questionnaire assessing their risk for mood and anxiety disorders and provides referral information for treatment.

Depression is NOT a normal part of aging!
Retirement does not always equal a life of leisure. As most Americans dream of the golden years ahead, many senior citizens have a difficult time adjusting to a slower pace and less responsibility. Symptoms of clinical depression often accompany other illnesses common later in life, such as Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. But the stigmas associated with mental illness often prevent seniors from seeking treatment, and without treatment, depression can lead to destructive behavior and thoughts of suicide. Comprising only 12% of the U.S. population, individuals aged 65 and older account for 16% of all suicide deaths, with white males being particularly vulnerable. National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) gives people access to an anonymous validated, screening questionnaire and provides referral information for treatment.
