Mental Health Screening Tools

Taking a mental health screening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition.

Mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, are real, common and treatable. And recovery is possible. But not all of us think about our mental health enough.

If you've had trouble sleeping lately, if you've been experiencing racing thoughts, or if you're just curious - the screens below can help you understand more about your mental health. If you're unsure which screen to take, here are some guidelines:

  • The Anxiety Screen will help if you feel that worry and fear affect your day to day life.
  • The Youth Screen is for young people (age 11-17) who are concerned that their emotions, attention, or behaviors might be signs of a problem.
  • The Bipolar Screen is for individuals who have mood swings - or unusual or extreme shifts in mood and energy.
  • The Parent Screen is for parents of young people to determine if their child’s emotions, attention, or behaviors might be signs of a problem.
  • The Psychosis Screen is for young people (age 12-35) who feel like their brain is playing tricks on them (seeing, hearing or believing things that don't seem real or quite right).
  • The Work Health Survey is a screen to explore how healthy or unhealthy your work enviornment is. It is in testing phase and every screen taken helps us better understand mental health in the workplace.

Following screening, you will be provided with information, resources and tools to discuss the results with a provider.

Please note: Unless specified, our screens are validated only for adults. By clicking on a screen below, you acknowledge that the screen is not a diagnostic instrument. You are encouraged to share your results with a physician or healthcare provider. Mental Health America Inc., sponsors, partners, and advertisers disclaim any liability, loss, or risk incurred as a consequence, directly or indirectly, from the use and application of these screens.
