Our national affiliate, Mental Health America (MHA), is a leader in providing mental health screenings to the public, being among the most commonly used mental health screening tools in clinical settings. Since 2014, these clinically validated collection of screenings have been used by nearly 7.5 million individuals.
Anonymous, confidential, and free – these online screenings are one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition. Screenings include: Depression (also available in Spanish), Psychosis, PTSD, Addiction, Postpartum Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety (also available in Spanish), and Eating Disorders. There are additional tests designed for parents and youth, each being an assessment to gauge if your child is having emotional, attentional, or behavioral difficulties. Recently, MHA also added a Work Health Survey to evaluate an individuals opinion about workplace wellness at their own company. While not a screening, this survey helps MHA to identify how to help companies do better in creating and maintaining healthier workplaces across the nation.
