Healthy Body and Healthy Mind

As the temperatures turn cooler and the days get shorter, you may begin to notice something in the air other than a crisp breeze. Flu season is upon us and it’s important to take preventative measures to stay healthy. We’re all familiar with the steps: wash your hands, take time to get a vaccine, and avoid close contact with sick people.

While we all know the ways to keep our bodies physically healthy, do you know the ways to keep yourself mentally healthy? A great place to start is a mental health check-up. Bryan Medical Center offers free, anonymous online mental health assessments at Bryan Medical Center’s anonymous and confidential online screening. Self-assessments are available for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. After you complete a screening, you’ll receive customized feedback and recommendations on where to seek treatment.

Stay healthy this season both body and mind!

If you have had persistent feelings of sadness and are wondering if your sadness is a symptom of a more serious condition called depression take a free, confidential online screening.  The good news is that depression can be overcome.  You can have feelings of happiness once again.
