Mental Health Screenings

Clinical depression is a medical illness affecting more than 19 million American adults each year. Like screenings for physical illnesses, screenings for mental and emotional health are important for overall wellness. Screenings are a good way to find out if depression might be the cause of feelings like prolonged sadness, anxiety, irritability, loss of pleasure, hopelessness, and worthlessness, and even physical pain.

Online Screenings

Stress, sadness, mood swings, and anxiety can be part of the normal ups and downs of life. We all experience problems in daily living from time to time. But when these problems become severe or long-lasting, or start to interfere with daily life, they may be symptoms of a more serious mental health problem.

Here's a quick and simple way to check your symptoms and find out if it might be time to seek professional help.

You can take a confidential and anonymous online screening for any of the following mental health conditions:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Alcohol misuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Generalized anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress

At the end of each screening, you will receive an immediate result that can be printed and taken to a clinician for further evaluation.

These confidential screenings are developed by MindWise Innovations, a non-profit agency, and are hosted on their website. All information you enter is secure, confidential, and completely anonymous. No identifying information is collected. No one but you will see your individual results.

Free online mental health screenings are available at any time to university faculty, staff, and students:

It also offers help to family members and caregivers of those who suffer from mood disorders, and all people who wish to better understand depression and bipolar disorder.
