Bassett Healthcare’s Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic in Cooperstown will be offering a free and private screening with a Bassett psychotherapist in recognition of National Depression Screening Day. This free screening will take place on Thursday, October 5th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Bassett Healthcare is a supporter of National Depression Screening Day, which hopes to raise awareness and connect individuals to the services they may need. Many people are unable to tell the difference between passing sadness, normal grief and serious clinical depression. Bassett’s professionals will be assisting patients in telling the difference. Participants will be asked to complete a simple evaluation form that will then be reviewed with a therapist.

This service is funded by the Kathryn Tamara Harmon Fund, established in loving memory of Elmer M. Harmon. For more information, call 607-546-3660.
