Clinic to Provide Free Adult ADHD Screenings

Project 365 #147: 270509 Testing Times AheadAs part of ADHD Awareness Month, the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic is providing free ADHD screenings to adults (age 18+) at the end of October. The screenings, which will take about 5-10 minutes, will be conducted by graduate students in the Counseling Psychology program at Southern Miss.

Brief screenings cannot determine whether someone meets the diagnostic criteria for ADHD; they are designed to identify individuals who may benefit from more comprehensive diagnostic evaluations.

Screenings will be offered on October 30 from 1-5pm and October 31 from 8am-Noon in Owings-McQuagge Hall (Rm. 202) on the University of Southern Mississippi's Hattiesburg campus. Screenings are free and open to the public. No appointments are necessary during this screening event.

Anyone interested in learning more about the symptoms of adult ADHD - either for themselves, a friend, or a family member - can attend one of the screening days and receive a brief consultation about these symptoms and the importance of seeking treatment. Referral information will be provided in a handout, along with information about ADHD, so it can be distributed to others who may be interested.

For more information, please call 601.266.4601.
