Depression can be hard to detect .
and that's why one local organization is working to
make sure people get the help they need.
The La Crosse Y-M-C-A is hosting a free depression
screening event later this week.
It's part of National Depression Screening Day on
While the screenings won't provide an official diagnosis
of depression .
they can help someone determine if they're showing
and if they should seek help.
Depression is actually undiagnosed at an alarming
rate and the difficult thing about that from my perspective
is that depression is really treatable, there's lots
of things we can do to help people, so the earlier
that somebody recognizes that there are some issues
going on, the earlier they get help, the better.
If you or someone you know is interested in the screening
there are two sessions available on Thursday .
from 8 until 11 in the morning at the Y-M-C-A North
and from 4 until 7 in the evening at the La Crosse
Appointments are not necessary for the event.
