Mental Health Screening
Improving awareness about mental health in the community is of absolute importance and is part of IDRAAC’s mission. One of the effective ways to disseminate information to the general public about mental health is through health fairs that take place in public settings. In addition to screening for medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and breast cancer among others, participants in a health fair can also get screened for their temperament, as well as for common mental health conditions such as depression, panic disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Alzheimer’s disease and alcohol and drug use. IDRAAC participates in many health fairs and offers screenings to hundreds of adults, children, adolescents and elderly.
