Mental health screenings are available at Grand Rapids Community College today until 3 p.m. on the third floor of the Student Center, outside the Counseling and Career Center. The informal assessments are part of a larger, national movement to to be more aware of mental health.
“A lot of students are experiencing anxiety and depression,” said Sarah Rose, Program Director of Disability and Occupational Support at GRCC.
Information is available about many mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and alcoholism.
“A lot of times, people find information here that they can then share with a family member or friend,” Rose said.
The introductory screening only takes about 10 minutes.
