“How are you feeling?” 
When asked this question, do you take the time and really look at how you are doing and handling the different issues in your life?
It is important to know the difference between being a bit down and the symptoms of depression.
In recognition of National Depression Screening Day, Blue Valley Behavioral Health will offer free mental health screenings for youth and adults.
Interested participants can access the confidential screening tools at www.bvbh.net. Click on the “Screening options/online screening” tab to access the Depression Screen, or a variety of other available screens, including mood disorders and addictions.
These screenings provide immediate results, along with other helpful information and resources on behavioral health issues.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. members of the public are welcome to print their Depression Screen results and review them briefly with a professional counselor at the Nebraska City BVBH office, 1903 4th Corso.
You are not alone. Depression affects more than 15 million adults in the U.S., and only half of those with depression are diagnosed and receive treatment.
