Taking an online mental health screening is a great way to check if you’re experiencing symptoms of a mental illness and is a good starting place if you think you might need help.  Mental Health America’s national affiliate offers several online screenings:

  • Depression Screening: For individuals who are feeling overwhelming sadness
  • Anxiety Screening: If you feel that worry and fear affect your day to day life
  • Bipolar Screening: For individuals who have mood swings – or unusual or extreme shifts in mood and energy
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Screening: For those who are bothered by a traumatic life event
  • Alcohol or Substance Use Screening: This will help determine if your use of alcohol or drugs is an area to address
  • Youth Screening: For young people (ages 11-17) who are concerned that their emotions, attention, or behaviors might be signs of a problem
  • Parent Screening: For parents of young people to determine if their child’s emotions, attention, or behaviors might be signs of a problem
  • Psychosis Screening: For young people (ages 13-35) who feel like their brain is playing tricks on them (seeing, hearing or believing things that don’t seem real or quite right)
  • Eating Disorder Screen:  For determination of whether someone may have an eating disorder.
  • Work Health Survey: A screening to explore how healthy or unhealthy your work environment is.  This is in a testing phase and every screen taken helps us better understand mental health in the workplace.
