National Depression Screening Day at Tunxis


Tunxis Community College invites the community to National Depression Screening Day on October 7 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Founders Hall to receive free, anonymous informational screenings for depression and other mood disorders.

Participants will take a private self-test, and will have the opportunity to speak with screeners and a counselor. Referrals to treatment services and educational information will be available. Light refreshments will be served.

The event is held annually on the first Thursday in October to spread awareness of depression and related disorders, and to educate the public about symptoms and treatments. For more information, call 860.773.1506 or email
