Got the Blues? You Are Not Alone
Ever feel like you are the only one who is sad in a world of happy people? Everyone experiences stress, sadness and anxiety from time to time – it’s part of life. These feelings often happen when you a lose a job, children move away from home, during divorce, with a death in the family, or during retirement. But when changes in mood and behavior interfere with one’s ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities, it could be a sign of depression. National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) gives people the opportunity to take a free, anonymous questionnaire assessing their risk for mood and anxiety disorders and provides referral information for treatment. Branches Counseling Center will be at Reeves-Sain Drug Store (1801 Memorial Blvd, Murfreesboro) Thursday, October 6th from 10am – 2pm providing free depression and anxiety screenings. Call Branches Counseling Center at 615-904-7170 or go to www.branchesrecoverycenter.com for more information.
