Take this test to get answers to few of your questions related to your mental health. Do not forget to read the disclaimer.
This is not a diagnosis tool. Only a health or mental health professional can make a diagnosis of any mental illness. An accurate diagnosis for any psychiatric disorders can only be made by a physician or qualified mental health professional after a complete evaluation, including a physical exam, to rule out any other medical illnesses or conditions that may be accounting for the symptoms.” (Only a mental health professional can make a real diagnostic determination.)”
This screening is not meant to be a diagnosis. Diagnosis and care of mental health conditions can be difficult. For example, having symptoms of depression is different from having depression. In addition, symptoms of depression can be caused by other mental health conditions, such as bipolar disorder, or other health problems, like a thyroid disorder. A trained professional, such as a doctor or a mental health specialist, can make this determination and find the right support which can help you restore your mental health.
Keep screening yourself time and again. Remember screening is a great tool in staying well. Feel free to come back in a week or two and screen yourself again. Screening is an effective way to check in the status of one’s mental health. It also helps to learn and remember the symptoms so that you can recognize it later on or in someone else. It helps to understand the issue.
