Screenings for Depression by Morris Psychological Group, October 9, 2014 from 4:30 to 8:30pm, Rockaway Townsquare Mall (Macy’s Court)

Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) September 03, 2014

Morris Psychological Group, PA announces they will be offering free screenings for depression on October 9, 2014 from 4:30-8:30 at the Rockaway Townsquare Mall (Macy’s Court). More than 1,000 organizations nationwide will be hosting National Depression Screening Day events including hospitals, colleges and military installations. After completing a screening, participants will receive referral information to local resources and agencies that can offer further evaluation and treatment if necessary. This is the sixth year in a row that Morris Psychological Group has participated in National Depression Screening Day.

According to Clinical Psychologist Dr. Francine Rosenberg with the Morris Psychological Group "We are honored to be able to provide support to the people in our community with free screenings for depression as part of National Depression Screening Day. Depression is a serious and common mental health condition and often it goes undiagnosed. We hope that the free screenings can be helpful to people who are dealing with depression and don’t know where to turn." This event will also be co-sponsored by the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) of Succasunna.

It is critical to know the signs and symptoms of depression, such as changes in appetite, loss of energy or loss of interest in usual activities, so that people can take the necessary steps to improve their health. Research supports the use of mental health screenings as a means of helping individuals identify symptoms that may be consistent with a mental health disorder, and to seek treatment if needed.

In the U.S., almost one in 10 adults has depression but more than half of those suffering never seek treatment. Screening for depression and other mood disorders is important as it allows individuals to identify warning signs early, and connect with the appropriate treatment resources. Early recognition and treatment offer the best opportunity for recovery.

“National Depression Screening Day is a supportive community initiative to connect the public with mental health professionals and screenings,” adds Douglas Baum, Licensed Clinical Social Worker with Morris Psychological Group. Mental health screenings are an important and easy way for people to identify depression related problems and learn about local treatment options.

Research supports the use of mental health screenings as a means of helping individuals identify symptoms that may be consistent with a mental health disorder, and to seek treatment if needed.

The Morris Psychological Group, P.A. offers a wide range of therapy and evaluation services to adults, children and adolescents.
