CALGARY (660 NEWS) — For the 13th straight year, the Calgary Counselling Centre is offering people an online tool to check on their mental well-being.

The centre’s depression screening test is online, as part of National Depression Screening Day this Thursday.

Director of Counselling Initiatives, Cathy Keough, says the three-minute test is confidential.

“It gives you immediate feedback in terms of where you can seek help,” said Keough. “It will say this is something you should consider, or it might say you’re doing well and there’s no need for further intervention.”

Keough says they continue to see more and more people accessing the tool, from both here in Calgary and around the world.
