Time to "Get Your Check-Up from the Neck Up"!
Every October, look for our table at community events near you! We provide wellness activities and tips and offer FREE screenings so you can get your annual "check-up from the neck up"!
We use our integrated behavioral health screening tool that assesses for risk of depression, suicidality, anxiety, trauma, alcohol and other drugs, nicotine, problem gambling, and partner violence. Providers: Get tool here.
In 2019, we held 12 events in 10 towns in conjunction with many community partners. We reached 817 individuals with information and screened 224 people. 65% of those screened scored at risk for a mental health or substance use disorder and were provided referral information. 6% scored at risk for problem gambling.
