“Out of the Blue”: Help is here for Depression

Posted by iusbvision on October 9, 2007

One in 20 Americans experience depression at some point during their lives and nearly half of all college students report experiencing depression. The good news is that most individuals experiencing depression benefit from treatment and, if you have experienced depression, you are not alone.    

In conjunction with National Depression Screening Day, the Student Counseling Center (SCC) at IU South Bend is sponsoring a campus-wide Depression Screening Week. Beginning Monday, October 8 through Thursday, October 11, information tables will be provided throughout the campus to raise awareness of depression and the services available to assist in the treatment of depression. Tables will be placed in the Student Activities Center and Wiekamp Hall from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. The counseling center staff will be available to provide information regarding depression as well as the services offered by the SCC.      

Recently added features to the SCC services are free and confidential online mental health screenings, including a depression screening. To access the screenings, log on to the SCC website at: and click on the “Online Mental Health Screenings” button.     For more information or to make an appointment with a counselor, contact the SCC, located in the Administration Building, Room 130, at 520-4125.
