The N.E.W. Mental Health Connection welcomes you to our online screening for Depression, Bipolar, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This free and anonymous screening tool is provided so that you may find out- in a matter of minutes- whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you. Keep in mind that a screening is not a substitute for a complete mental health evaluation. It does not result in a diagnosis but rather provides an indication of whether or not a person has symptoms consistent with a particular illness.
Screenings are available in English and Spanish for: Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
* These screenings are anonymous and meant for informational purposes, they are not meant to be diagnostic.
Who should be screened?
Mental illness can affect anyone at anytime regardless of age, race, gender, education or socioeconomic status. Some risk factors may include family history, other illnesses, certain medications, or difficult life events. The following screenings are designed for adults. If you are under the age of 17 and believe you or one of your friends has depression, talk with a trusted adult (ex: teacher, school counselor, principal, coach, parent or other family member, clergy person, physician, etc.) who can help you find the help that you need.
