National Depression Screening Day is held annually during Mental Illness Awareness Week in October and sponsored by Screening for Mental Health, Inc.
National Depression Screening Day is comprised of awareness events that include an optional screening component. This day began as an effort to reach individuals across the nation with important mental health education and connect them with support services.
National Depression Screening Day pioneered Screening for Mental Health as the first, voluntary, mental health screening initiative in 1990. Twenty-five years later, this awareness day has expanded to thousands of colleges, community-based organizations, and military installations providing the program to the public each year.
