Self-Assessment Screening

Early Identification is Key
Mental health screenings are a key part of mental health. Taking a screening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition. Mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, are real, common and treatable. Recovery is possible. But not all of us think about our mental health enough. If you believe you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health problem, please consult our nurse practitioner, counselors or your primary care physician for further evaluation.

Early identification and treatment of mental health conditions lead to better outcomes. Early treatment may also lessen long-term disability and prevent years of suffering. Health care screenings are common and mental health screenings should be no exception. 

If you’ve had trouble sleeping lately, if you’ve been experiencing racing thoughts, or if you’re just curious – a mental health screening can help you understand more about your mental health.

Mental Health Pre-Screening Questions​

Below is a list of 9 simple questions you can ask yourself or a loved one that may help you recognize a developing mental health crisis. Not every  unusual emotional state or thought pattern indicates a mental illness. That does not mean that you should simply ignore persistent changes in your mental or emotional state. Remember, this screening is not a substitute for a professional screening or evaluation. If you’re concerned about any aspect of your mental health and wellness, it’s best to talk to a mental health care provider or primary physician.

Having these thoughts from time to time does not mean there is something wrong with you, everyone has them sometimes. However, each of the first 8 mental and emotional states are comparatively rare in healthy individuals.  Experiencing these mental states often or even sometimes, may indicate you are moving towards developing a mental health or addiction problem. Please schedule a follow up with our mental health professionals or your family physician for further evaluation.

In contrast, feeling “pretty good” about one’s life is more or less the default setting for the human brain; and, the absence of this mildly positive emotional state implies you are experiencing more stress than you are able to tolerate. See further explanations below. 

Questions 1-3: If you have been experiencing all three of these mental states frequently, you may be heading towards a major depression episode. Individually they are red flags for depression. When they occur together, they should raise serious concerns.
