Take a free Mental Health Test!

A screening is a tool that has been proven by research to help identify symptoms of a mental health disorder. MHA's screening tools provide an anonymous, free and private way to learn about your mental health and if you are showing warning signs of a mental illness. A screening only takes a few minutes, and after you are finished you will be given information about the next steps you should take based on the results.

A screening is not a diagnosis, but it can be a helpful tool for starting a conversation with your doctor or a loved one about your mental health.
