PRLog - Oct. 10, 2012 - DENVER -- Denver, CO – Maria Droste Counseling Center, Colorado’s center for mental health, is celebrating National Depression Education and Awareness Month in October by sponsoring an online mental health screening (http://www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/MARIADROSTE). This screening is free, anonymous, and takes just a few moments to complete. It tests for anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and adolescent depression.

According to the World Health Organization, depression affects 121 million people worldwide. It doesn’t discriminate by age, gender, class, or ethnicity. It can affect anyone, but many still feel self-conscious or embarrassed about getting a diagnosis or seeking treatment. While Maria Droste’s online mental health screening is not diagnostic, it can give a good indication of whether the person taking the screening should seek further help.

Linda McKinzie, Executive Director at Maria Droste Counseling Center, said, “Depression is an isolating experience and often causes people to feel immobilized and unable to take the next step. Having a screening tool like this helps to provide a next step that is easier to achieve. Once someone finds the words to better understand what they are experiencing, they are often able to reach out for the help that they need.”

Maria Droste Counseling Center is a collection of 27 individual therapists from many disciplines with many backgrounds and areas of expertise. Its experienced intake counselors work with potential clients to choose a therapist who will best fit their individual needs. Since 1989, it has worked to ensure the availability of affordable counseling services to everyone in the community and strives to provide the absolute highest quality mental health care to those in need, regardless of their ability to pay.
