What Is a Mental Health Screening?
A mental health screening is an exam of your emotional health. Mental disorders are common and affect more than half of all Americans at some point in their lives. There are many types of mental disorders, and a mental health screening can be used as a tool to determine if you may need additional mental health support. You’ll get a free assessment, plus education about various conditions and referrals to appropriate community resources.
Why Get a Mental Health Screening?
Mental health screenings allow for early identification and intervention and help bridge the gap. We’ve found that early identifcation and treatment leads to better outcomes. Early treatment may also lessen long-term disability and prevent years of suffering. The information obtained from the screening is not a diagnosis but will better enable you to take charge of your brain health.
The benefits of a mental health screening include:
- To determine if your mental wellness requires further attention.
- To determine a baseline score that you and your doctor can track over time to detect early warning signs.
- To determine if you are eligible for further screenings as part of a research study.
