National Depression Screening


Mood swings and sadness are a normal part of life. Many people use the word depression to describe those mood swings, but clinical depression is much more than just sadness. It can be overwhelming, taking over your life and making it difficult to work, sleep or be happy.

The good news is that depression is a preventable condition. If you're feeling overwhelmed and think that you might be clinically depressed, the Mental Health Association of Palm Beach County invites you to take this free, confidential online depression screening test from Mental Health America. If your screen results show that you may have depression, please seek assistance right away.
