Depression is a serious mental health issue that affects more than 16 million American adults each year. It can often be thought of as just a “phase” or bad mood, but in reality, depression can be a debilitating condition requiring professional support.
Many cases of depression go undiagnosed due to stigma surrounding the illness and an incomplete understanding of how it can be overcome. It is critical for individuals with depression to be diagnosed properly so they may seek the most appropriate treatment to encourage healing.
At Oceans Behavioral Hospital, we are working to address the growing issue of depression in our communities. That’s why we’ve developed this Oceans Healthcare Depression Screening Questionnaire. Utilizing this form helps identify people who are at risk of having depression.
