People with migraine disease are five times more likely to experience depression than people living without any type of headache disorder. It would be a mistake, then, for Somebody Heal Me to let Mental Health Month pass without telling you how to get screened for depression.

Visit the following link to get to the online screening test:

Depression Screening Test

Complete the depression screener and share your results with your health care provider.

For those of us living with depression and migraines, we must address both conditions. If you have untreated depression, you're ignoring half of your needs.
