Marshall University’s Psychology Clinic will participate in National Depression Screening Day by offering free depression screenings to Marshall students and the Huntington community.

The depression screenings will be performed by Marshall graduate students in the clinical psychology program at Marshall’s Psychology Clinic in Harris Hall room 449 Thursday, Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. All screenings will be done by walk-in basis only, with no appointment necessary.

This is the fourth year that the Psychology Clinic has taken part in the nationwide screening event.

“We have served on average about 30 people each year so far, providing screenings and information regarding local treatment resources,” Brittany Canady, an assistant professor at Marshall, said. “We want to encourage Marshall students to take advantage of this opportunity.”

National Depression Screening Day occurs each year in order to raise awareness about depression and encourage people to be screened for this condition.  There will be sites throughout the country offering free depression screenings for anyone interested in being screened.
