About the Interactive Screening Program
Every year depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, alcohol abuse, and eating disorders affect millions of Americans. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about fourteen million Americans have experienced physical, emotional, social and/or legal problems as a result of their alcohol use. Depression interferes with the lives of 20 million people, and constant anxiety - four million. Eleven percent of 13 year olds will experience major depression by the time they are 19. Over five million Americans have an eating disorder, and many others are impacted by the daily symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
