Mental Health America is now distributing free access to the “M3″, our MHA-branded, anonymous, online mental health screening tool.
Mental health screening can save lives, says Mental Health America. Mental health has consequences beyond those we’ve been hearing about in recent media reports on shootings, gun control, military suicides and other public issues. Undiagnosed mental illness affects every part of an individual’s overall health as well.
Mental Health America provides the only online test that screens for depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and anxiety. The innovative online mood-screening tool is offered in partnership with M3 which created this medically proven checklist for mental health well-being.
The M3 online mental health screening tool is a 27 question survey that takes approximately 3 minutes to complete. The M3 is the only self-administered clinical tool that integrates patient self-rating of symptoms covering all of the major mood and anxiety disorders. It is the first such instrument that includes patient education and a monitor of patient improvement and side-effects covering the full course of treatment. The tool screens simultaneously for Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and Bipolar Disorder and is online at http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/llw/depression_screen2.cfm.
