How do you Mind Your Health?
Taking a screening test is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition.
Did you know that...
- About 1 in 5 American adults will have a mental health condition in any given year?1
- But only 41 percent of them will receive services?1
- About 10 percent of the American adult population will have a mood disorder, such as depression or bipolar?2 3
- And 18 percent have an anxiety disorder, including post-traumatic stress disorder?2 3
Mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, are real, common and treatable. And recovery is possible. But not all of us think about our mental health enough.
If you've had trouble sleeping lately, if you've been experiencing racing thoughts, or if you're just curious - the screens below can help you understand more about your mental health. If you're unsure which screen to take, here are some guidelines:
- The Depression Screen is most appropriate for individuals who are feeling overwhelming sadness.
- The Anxiety Screen will help if you feel that worry and fear affect your day to day life.
- The Bipolar Screen is intended to support individuals who have mood swings - or unusual shifts in mood and energy.
- The PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) Screen is best taken by those who are bothered by a traumatic life event.
You may also take all four screens. Following screening, you will be provided with information, resources and tools to discuss the results with a provider.
