Mental Health & Wellness Self-Screening

Important note: Screening self-tests are helpful tools that can increase self-awareness and help assess for signs and symptoms of common mental health challenges. They can help identify areas of your life that need a little extra attention and/or support. However, self-test results are not a medical diagnosis. If you’re concerned about any aspect of your health and wellness, please contact your doctor or other health care provider.
