Online Mental Health Screenings

For an accurate diagnosis of a mental health disorder, participants should seek an evaluation from a qualified healthcare professional. The screenings on this site are not appropriate for, and should not be completed by, persons under age 18. Persons under age 18 with symptoms of depression are advised to talk with their parents or guardians about seeing a physician or qualified mental health professional for a complete evaluation.

Screening for Mental Health

Screening for Mental Health, Inc. (SMH) is the non-profit organization that first introduced the concept of large-scale mental health screenings with its flagship program National Depression Screening Day in 1991. SMH programs now include both in-person and online programs for depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, alcohol problems, and suicide prevention.

SMH programs have been used by hospitals, mental health centers, social service agencies, government agencies, older adult facilities, primary care clinicians, colleges, secondary schools, corporations and HMO's, reaching individuals ranging from teens to older adults.

SMH's programs have reduced the stigma that inhibits many individuals with mental illness from seeking treatment. The programs are also helpful to those who are worried about a friend or family member. Teaching people how to identify mental illness and specific ways to access treatment for themselves or a loved one is the cornerstone of SMH's programs.
