A normal reaction to stressful events or something more? Learn more at National Depression Screening Day(R) on October 10th

BOSTON, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the crisis on Wall Street, a boom of home foreclosures, and high energy and food prices throughout the country, no one can blame you for feeling anxious or overwhelmed. These days it is common and understandable to be angry, worried and even gloomy, especially if you lost your retirement fund, your job, your house, or are stressed about paying the bills.

Worry, anger and stress are normal, appropriate and even necessary during life's difficult moments. But when negative feelings prevent you from doing your daily activities or interacting with friends and loved ones, it might be time to seek help.

National Depression Screening Day, held on October 10th at over a thousand sites nationwide, provides the opportunity to gauge your emotional health and speak with a health professional about your personal concerns -- all for free. At this public event, you can fill-out an anonymous questionnaire to see if you might suffer from depression or a related disorder and learn how to get help. Each participating location offers a wide range of educational resources, geared toward a variety of audiences -- so you can attend a screening event if you're concerned for yourself, or if you're worried about someone close to you. To find a site near you or to take a screening online, visit http://www.MentalHealthScreening.org.
