Health and Wellness Center Installs MindKare Kiosk in Rohrbach Library

Sept. 1, 2017

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - In an effort to reduce the public stigma surrounding mental illness on college campuses, the Kutztown University Health and Wellness Center has installed a MindKare Kiosk inside the main entrance to Rohrbach Library.  The kiosk comes as a part of a grant from Berks County Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities Program.

The freestanding electronic touch-screen kiosk is designed for public spaces and serve as thought provokers, conversations starters and signs of hope for those living with a mental health condition. The kiosk will provide online screening self-assessments in a safe, anonymous way for individuals to check in on their mental health. The kiosks include screenings for six mental health issues: anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and alcohol use disorders.

Individuals are provided with an assessment of their mental health, information on whether their results are consistent with a mental health disorder and access to quality local treatment resources.

The kiosk is slated to be launched September 5.
