Crisis Resources

Mental Health America is a website to help individuals learn more about mental wellness and mental health as well as helping people to connect to resources that can be helpful.  One of the many pages on their site can help you to determine if it’s time to reach out to a professional for help is their Online Screening Tools . Of course, the bottom line is, if you have decided that you want help, it doesn’t matter what the screening tool says.  But, if you aren’t sure, the tools may help you to think things through and, while they don’t screen for everything that a person may be experiencing, they can be a place to start.  (Please note that most of the screening tools have been developed for adults.  Scroll down to read the explanations for each test for further details.)
