This October, the State of Minnesota is promoting depression awareness and screening tools for its employees and families.
Depression is a common and treatable medical condition that often causes feelings of sadness, loss of interest, withdrawal from others, and a loss of energy and confidence. Depression has an enormous impact on a person's ability to pursue happiness and diminishes our drive to succeed and enjoy life.
SEGIP Health Solutions has partnered with our health plans and LifeMatters EAP to provide private self-screening tools and information about depression.
Depression is an illness, not a weakness. If you suspect that you or a loved one may be depressed, it's important to address the problem right away.
