Depression is a serious and complex disease that affects 19 million Americans every year. In an effort to shed light on this pervasive disease, Tri-City Medical Center is offering free depression screenings* which are open to all adults in the community. Each individual will have the opportunity to discuss the results with a Tri-City Medical Center mental health professional.

Symptoms of depression include:

  • persistent sadness
  • feelings of hopelessness
  • unexplained weight loss or gain
  • decreased energy
  • difficulty concentrating
  • insomnia or over-sleeping
  • thoughts of death or suicide

*The screenings are not a professional diagnosis. They point out the presence or absence of depressive symptoms and provide a referral for further evaluation, if needed. You should see your doctor or a qualified mental health professional if you experience five or more symptoms for longer than two weeks or if the symptoms are severe enough to interfere with your daily routine.
