Depression

Every year National Depression Screening Day gives millions of people the opportunity to take a free, anonymous questionnaire assessing their risk for mood and anxiety disorders and provides referral information for treatment.

Visit our screening page to take a free and annonymous mental health screening.

One in four women and one in 10 men will experience depression at some point during their lifetimes.
More than 80 percent of all cases of clinical depression can be effectively treated with medication, psychotherapy or a combination of both.
Screenings are often the first step in getting help.

Stay tuned for more details.

Expectant Mothers

CBH’s October Lunch & Learn meeting will focus on Nurse-Family Partnership — a free and voluntary program for expectant mothers.

Nurse-Family Partnership provides a free and voluntary program for expectant mothers.  This home visiting program begins  before the birth of the child to answer questions and help prepare the mother for childbirth and ensure a healthy delivery.  They also teach the mother skills for both their own self-care as well as basic childcare skills and will support the family until the child reaches age 2.  With more than 30 years of randomized, controlled trials that demonstrate better outcomes for families who participate in this program, Nurse-Family Partnership is a community program which offers both results and a relationship mothers can count on.
