Mental Health Screenings

Help Yourself. Help Others.

Everyone experiences stress, sadness and anxiety from time to time—it’s part of life. But if you are feeling overwhelmed, depressed, or unable to do the things you once enjoyed, it may be time to assess your emotional health.

If you are concerned about yourself or someone you love, take a few minutes to complete an anonymous self-assessment.


Why should I take a screening? 

Mental health screenings are a quick way to determine if you or someone you care about may need to reach out to a doctor or mental health professional for an evaluation. They are educational, not diagnostic. Key factors to keep in mind

  • CHECK-UP: Completing these screenings will help you determine if your recent thoughts or behaviors may be associated with a common, treatable mental health issue.
  • ANONYMOUS: We cannot link these screenings to any one individual, so you remain anonymous. Take these screenings anywhere you feel comfortable.
  • FAST: It takes only a few minutes per screening, and at the end, you will be presented with information and next steps.
