Mental Health Self-Assessment
It can be hard to put a finger on a feeling, especially if you’re struggling with mood swings, loss of sleep, uncertainty and more. A simple self-assessment can help direct you to support services that can help.
If you’d like to know more about your own level of mental wellness, Mental Health America offers a variety of screenings that can help guide you in the right direction. The immediate results are meant to provide a quick snapshot of your mental health and not to be used as a medical diagnosis.
