Not feeling like yourself lately? Learn more about mental health and emotional wellness during College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) National Depression Screening Days, Oct. 7 and 8, as we join in educating the community about depression, help fight the stigma around mental health, and most importantly, bring help to those who need it.

“Each year CWI holds depression screening events to help raise awareness of mental health within the CWI community,” said Jodi Hickenlooper, Interim Assistant Director of Counseling Services at the College. “Students will have an opportunity to privately assess their own symptoms of depression and learn more about how to manage those symptoms through self-care strategies, coping skills, or counseling.”

Complete a confidential depression and/or anxiety questionnaire or speak with a mental health professional during drop-in consultations Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m., and Thursday, Oct. 8, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Both sessions will be held via Zoom. Visit Counseling Services online for Zoom links, mental health information, and self-help resources, or email counselor@cwi.edu for additional assistance or questions
