Online screening tools are meant to be a quick snapshot of your mental health. If your results show that you may have symptoms of a mental illness or substance use disorder, consider sharing your results with your doctor or therapist. Only your doctor or behavioral health professional can make a diagnosis. A behavioral health provider (such as a doctor or a therapist) can give you a full assessment and talk to you about options for how to feel better.
