Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center plans to participate in National Depression Screening Day.

It is offering free screenings from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at the center on the first floor of the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine St.

Information about depression and support groups also will be available.

According to Bert Nash officials, one in four women and one in 10 men will experience depression at some point during their lifetime. Two-thirds of those suffering from the illness do not seek the necessary treatment.

For more information, call Bert Nash at 843-9192. A depression symptom quiz is available online at bertnash.org

How do you know if your depressed or not, have a bunch of depressed Bert Nash doctors evaluate you?

No thanks.

Wow, I didn't know we had so many comedians on this board?

Do you all really think you're that funny to make sarcastic remarks about depression screening? --

Maybe you need to read those posts again and think beyond your defensive attitude.

Not everyone spills their deep feelings about a subject on the threads, and often some of those simple rejoinders are actually users identifying with the article one way or another but they don't feel the need to go off on it with a full DSM IV of their, or their loved ones issues and experiences.

Now, how are the petitions for Prozac in the city water coming along?

Do you all really think you're that funny to make sarcastic remarks about depression screening? The ignorance some of y'all are showing is precisely why people do not want to seek treatment...because they fear they will be judged by others. The occasional "blues" or just being upset for a few days IS NOT clinical depression. I've had my best friend who I am reminded with everyday the seriousness of depression.

If you find anybody who is NOT depressed, let me know. I'd like to meet them.

Everyone is Crazy. It is just a matter of to what degree! But depression is no joke. Laying on the couch all day watching the HLN network.....eating..... sleeping.....not paying bills.....too many pills....just don't feel like doing anything. And yes there are a lot of depressed people in Larryville.

I think that most people who work have a little depression in them. Good thing that this is Lawrence and a large amount of people here do not work (what does that peace sign guy do for loot and no way that the lady who play the maracas makes enough bread to feed that tall, scary, Jesus looking dude) wait wait wait is this a screen for neurosis or depression?

The funny thing about depression is, given the state of some people's lives, they'd be crazy NOT to be depressed. So which is better? Crazy??? Depressed???
