Mental Health Screenings
Are you not sure of the symptoms you are noticing? You may choose to complete a screening tool prior to your first appt. The screening tools do not replace a clinical diagnosis, but may assist you in starting a dialog with your counselor about the symptoms you have noticed. Screeners are also available to include an educational component regarding alcohol and marijuana usage. All of our screeners are confidential.
The following screening tool is available to help identify areas of concern such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and alcohol issues.
