OSWEGO -- Mental health professionals from the Counseling Services Center at SUNY Oswego will offer local residents the opportunity to learn about the signs and symptoms of stress and anxiety and to participate in a free screening Wednesday, March 12, as part of National Anxiety Screening Disorders Week.
The program will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the formal lounge of Hewitt Union.
Participants in the screening will be able to learn about the causes, symptoms and treatments of stress and anxiety through videos, slides and education materials. They can complete an anonymous written screening test for anxiety and discuss the results with a mental health professional. They can also experience a 10-minute mini-massage by one of two licensed local massage therapists, Monica Garner and RoseMarie Cerklewich.
Anxiety disorders, which afflict an estimated 23 million Americans, include panic disorders, social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. There are many options for treating anxiety.
