Click, Call For Help During National Depression Screening Day [AUDIO]
UNDATED - Today (Thursday) is National Depression Screening Day. This year's campaign focuses on viewing and treating mental health with the same gravity as physical health.
Doctor Douglas Jacobs is with the non-profit organization "Screening For Mental Health". He says, even though it's getting better, there's still a stigma about mental illness.
He says the suicide of Robin Williams earlier this year was tragic, but it did get a national conversation started.
The National Suicide Prevention Hotline is available 24-hours a day, seven-days a week. If you or someone you know is in crisis, call 1-800-273-TALK.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people 25 to 34 years old.
