Depression Screening Days

Wednesday October 22nd and Wednesday November 5th 10-11am

The fall semester can be an exciting time of growth and discovery for college students. It can also be a very stressful time as well – leaving some students feeling overwhelmed, nervous, and sad. When left unattended, these feelings can lead to more serious problems such as mood disorders including depression, anxiety as well as contribute to unhealthy forms of self-medication.

Many people experience the first symptoms of depression during their college years. These symptoms are often exacerbated by being far away from home and the pressure to succeed academically. In addition, other stress factors may include landing a job after graduation and repaying student loans.

As the new school year kicks into high gear, CSJ Counseling Services is offering students a mental health check-up as part of our campus wide commitment to enhancing the general well-being of our student population.

Students will have an opportunity to take a brief, anonymous screening and learn more about their mental health. The screening provides students with insight into symptoms they might be experiencing and offers helpful treatment and referral information, if necessary.

Some of the questions included in the online screening are:

  • Have you lost pleasure in things you used to enjoy?
  • Do you have trouble sleeping or eating?
  • Do you deliberately avoid social situations?
  • Does your mood fluctuate between overly “high” and utterly hopeless?
  • Do you suffer from unexplained aches and pains?

CSJ is offering screenings on Wednesday, Oct. 22 from 10-11 a.m. in Tuttle Hall and on Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 10-11 a.m. outside the library. If you would like to schedule an appointment for a screening, please contact Counseling Services at 802-776-5256.

A screening will help you to better understand your mental health and whether it might be in your best interest to seek help.
