How do you know if it’s serious enough to warrant a trip to see a counselor? Mental health screenings are a quick, easy, and anonymous way to gather information about your own mental health. In planning for National Depression Screening Day (October 5, 2017), the Alliance is working with Screening for Mental Health to create a screening portal that Alliance members will be able to use and share; more information to come as this tool develops.
