Mental health disorders account for several of the top causes of disability worldwide and include: major depression (also called clinical depression), manic depression (also called bipolar disorder), schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. An estimated 26% of Americans ages 18 and older -- about 1 in 4 adults -- suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. Many people suffer from more than one mental disorder at a given time. In particular, depressive illnesses tend to co-occur with substance abuse and anxiety disorders.

Life’s cycles can cause changes in our mood and stress management. Take a moment to complete our free screening tool if you have experienced 2 or more of the following symptoms:

·         Feeling sad or blue

·         Trouble concentrating

·         Loss of sleep and appetite

·         Significant weight loss/gain

·         Irritability

·         Loss of interest in fun or pleasurable activities

Our screening tool currently hosts 9 screens: Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, PTSD, Alcohol and Substance use, a Youth and Parent screen, a Work Health Survey, and a Psychosis screen. Your score does not indicate that you have one of these diagnoses, simply that you may have some of the uncomfortable feelings associated with the disorders.

Once you have taken the screening and received your score, contact PGPS for additional resources.
