Take a screening
One of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you have symptoms of a mental illness or substance use disorder is by taking a free, online screening. There are many screening tools on the Mental Health America website and other websites. These tools can’t tell you whether or not you have a mental illness or substance use disorder; only a trained mental health professional or medical doctor can do that. The screening tools can help you identify signs that you might have a disorder and seek help if you need it.
