Nobody needs to struggle with depression
Take the free and anonymous online depression screening test from October 7–13.
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, our online depression-screening tool will be open. We encourage all Calgarians to take the test and seek help if needed.
Free, anonymous, and accessible
Our depression screening tool is offered in five languages and 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 here for you with no waitlist and a sliding fee scale.
