October is National Depression Screening Month. Depression is one of the most pressing concerns affecting college students, so Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) challenges the Mason community to #TalkAboutIt. Throughout the month, we will be sharing information to raise awareness and understanding of depression as well as ways students can access free, online self-screening tools. Last update: October 13, 2020.
