Free Confidential Mental Health Assessment

Symptoms of a mental illness can manifest in a multitude of expressions and intervals, and in a variety of levels of severity. Certain life events and physical health problems can trigger the onset of troubling mental, emotional, or behavioral symptoms, but there is a marked difference between an individual who is suffering from a mental health condition and an individual who is merely having an appropriate reaction to impactful life circumstances.

The following quiz should not be misinterpreted as a diagnostic tool, but it could be a helpful exercise to help individuals identify areas of concern that may be best treated by a mental health professional.


1. Do you or your loved one feel sad, anxious, irritable, or worried most days of the week for long periods of time?

2. Do you or your loved one have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep?

3. Do you or your loved one feel fatigued or lethargic most of the time, no matter the amount of sleep?

4. Do you or your loved one ever feel like someone is watching or is constantly out to get you?

5. Do you or your loved one continually experience racing, intrusive thoughts that you/they can't seem to quiet?

6. Do you or your loved one ever feel a sensation of deep euphoria for no apparent reason, almost as if you/they could conquer anything?

7. Do you or your loved one ever compulsively engage in behaviors that you/they later regret or could compromise safety (e.g. gambling, over-spending, shoplifting, or risky sexual behavior)?

8. Do you or your loved one ever feel unable to relax if things aren’t exactly symmetrical, perhaps engaging in habitual counting or reordering of objects?

9. Have you or your loved one ever heard a voice or seen something that you/they later realized was not really there or was not observed by others?

10. Do you or your loved one ever feel unable to leave home, even for work, school, or social responsibilities?

11. Do you or your loved one ever restrict your food intake or overeat to the point of sickness?

12. Do you or your loved one struggle to control your/their temper, often feeling high levels of rage?

13. Do you or your loved one regularly use substances like alcohol or illicit drugs, often feeling unable to function without them?

14. Do you or your loved one ever have thoughts of harming others, and have you/they ever made a plan to do so?

15. Have you or your loved one had thoughts of self-harming or made an attempt to take your/their own life?
