Your Health & Wellness Matter
Taking care of yourself is always important, and now even more critical during COVID. October includes a focus on depression and breast cancer.
October 8th is National Depression Screening Day.
The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that a third of Americans show signs of clinical depression and anxiety. There is an uptick of these and other mental health conditions during the pandemic.
National Depression Screening Day is held annually and is important for many reasons:
· It can help people make an informed decision.
· It drags depression out of the darkness.
· It can bring help to those who need it.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness about this disease, especially the importance of early detection. According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%.
