Event Description

Clinical depression is a common medical illness affecting more than 19 million American adults each year. Like screenings for other illnesses, depression screenings should be a routine part of healthcare, but the stigma associated with the disease often prevents people from seeking help and getting treated.

National Depression Screening Day gives people access to an anonymous, validated, screening questionnaire and provides referral information for treatment. Duke will be hosting two screening locations, where information about Duke’s clinical services and research will be available. No registration is required, and walk-ins are welcome.

Duke is sponsoring screenings for National Depression Screening Day on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at two locations:

Duke Clinic (South) Cafeteria - 40 Duke Medicine Circle, Durham, NC 27710
10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Bryan University Center - 125 Science Drive, Durham, NC 27708
11:00 am – 2:00 pm
