Self-assessment screening tools

Mental Health America offers free screenings for a range of common emotional conditions that often go undiagnosed and misunderstood. If you haven't been feeling like yourself lately, a simple online screening could help determine a place to start.

Once you take an online screening, you will receive immediate feedback about your score. If you score indicates you may have mental health concerns, or you have questions about the screening, please contact a member of our staff to set up an appointment to determine the next steps to a happier, healthier you.

If you are in need of immediate assistance, please dial 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-8255

Community resources and social services

We are providing you with this referral list because we are not open evenings, weekends, or holidays, and at times you may need emergency or other care.

Emergency Care: Dial 911

In any life threatening situation, such as a suicide attempt, alcohol or drug overdose, or serious mental health crisis, call 911 (Police) or proceed immediately to the emergency room of the nearest local hospital.
