Big Spring State Hospital and West Texas Centers will offer free and confidential depression screenings, Thursday, Oct. 11, on National Depression Screening Day.
Big Spring State Hospital and West Texas Centers began offering the screenings to the Howard County community in 2000. Scenic Mountain Medical Center began their partnership in 2007 with the two agencies to provide screenings at its facility.
The screenings will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the fourth floor at SMMC, 1601 W. 11th Place.
The Big Spring City Council will meet Tuesday evening to discuss a number of agenda items, including an update on a settlement agreement between Atmos Energy Corporation's West Texas Division and the steering committee the city is currently participating in.
The council approved final reading of a resolution denying a rate increase requested by Atmos Energy estimated at $11.6 million, a move City Finance Director Peggy Walker said would likely force the issue before the Texas Railroad Commission.
