Online Screenings: Test Your Mental Health

Do you not “feel like yourself?” Are you going through some difficult life changes? Have you noticed shifts in your feelings, thoughts or behaviors? Take the mental health screening below to find out if you should seek additional support.

National MHA's screening tool currently hosts 9 screens: Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, PTSD, Alcohol and Substance use, a Youth and Parent screen, a Work Health Survey, and a Psychosis screen. Your score does not indicate that you have one of these diagnoses, simply that you may have some of the uncomfortable feelings associated with the disorders.

Once you have taken the screening and received your score, return to the MHA-SWPA website for additional resources.


Next steps following your screening:

If you or someone you know is in crisis now, seek help immediately.  Please refer to our HOW TO GET HELP page for local and regional resources or dial 911 for immediate assistance.
