The screening provides a quick way to identify whether you may be experiencing symptoms commonly associated with an illness and determines whether follow up with a professional is recommended.

Screenings are available for depression, bipolar disorder (manic-depression), generalized anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. A screening is not a substitute for a complete mental health evaluation. It does not result in a diagnosis, but rather indicates whether or not a person has symptoms consistent with a particular illness.

Who should be screened? Everyone. Mental illness can affect anyone at anytime regardless of age, race, gender, education or socioeconomic status. Some risk factors may include family history, other illnesses, certain medications, or difficult life events.

What happens next? If follow up with a professional is recommended, general referral information and links to additional resources will be included at the end of the screening. Remember, mental illnesses are real, common, and treatable. Visit our website at to take your screening today.
