My daugther was having problems in college. Her grades were falling, she slept a lot and at times was angry and irritable with friends and family. She knew she was stressed and troubled but could not identify exactly what was wrong.
The Mental Health Association sponsored free mental health screenings on campus at a student health fair called Operation Health Check. My daughter saw the flyers promoting the free screenings and checked it out.
She took the screenings and screened positive for depression. Instead of just giving her the results, the Mental Health Association staff counseled her privately. They explained that depression is a real illness and experienced by many people. Most importanly, they discussed how treatable depression is and her options. This positive outlook motivated my daughter to get help right away. I have my daughter back thanks to a free screening. Thanks so much for all you do.
