Did you know that depression is highly treatable?
In fact, it is the most treatable of all mental health issues, and the sooner you seek support the faster and better the results. Today, 46% of Albertans experience depression, but only half seek help.
National Depression Screening Day is a community initiative led by Calgary Counselling Centre. During the week of October 7–13, 2019, we strive to raise awareness around depression and the impact is has on Calgarians through several events.
During this time, our online depression-screening tool will open.
Free, anonymous, and accessible
We offer our depression screening tool in five languages, and it works no matter where you are or what device you use. It’s free and completely anonymous.
This quick, free, depression-screening test can be taken from any computer or mobile device. The test identifies the presence or absence of depressive symptoms. Take the test and if you need help, we’re for you with no waitlist and a sliding fee scale.
Take the test between October 7–13 by visiting www.test4depression.com
