 For this display on depression, I made a sign with the following quote:

"In any given 1-year period, 9.5 percent of the population, or about 18.8 million American adults, suffer from a depressive illness.. Most   people with a depressive illness do not seek treatment, although the great majority - even those whose depression is extremely severe - can be helped." - National Institute of Mental Health

Another sign contained some basic information about SAD (seasonal depression). I downloaded an online depression screening test from the New York University School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry (see last URL under "Internet  Resources".) Also, I requested several booklets about depression and bipolar disorder from the National Institute of Mental Health.
