CU is holding free depression and anxiety screenings for students, faculty and staff who may be concerned with their mental health state.
According to the CU news release, from Oct. 19 to Oct. 21, members of the CU community can take a short questionnaire on depression and review the results with a professional therapist from CU’s Counseling and Psychological services.
The screenings will take place at the UMC in front of Baby Doe’s from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19 and Thursday, Oct. 21, and also inside Darley Commons in Williams Village from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Oct 21.
Amy Robertson, a clinical social worker at CU’s Counseling and Psychological Services, said in the news release that the screenings are a great opportunity for the community to learn more about depression.
“These screenings are a great opportunity for campus community members to learn about the symptoms of depression, find out how to help a friend or family member who may be at risk and talk with a health care professional about any questions or concerns,” Robertson said.
As part of the effort, CU will also be screening a film called “Depression on College Campuses” on Oct. 21 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in room 382 of the UMC.
CU is also implementing the Interactive Screening Program next month, which will be headed by the Counseling and Psychological services and will allow participants to screen for depression and suicide risk via an anonymous online form, according to the news release.
