Screenings & Education
Reaching your community has never been easier.
Doctors and mental health professionals are turning to screenings as a viable way to identify potential physical and mental health conditions. Just like a blood pressure screen helps to detect warning signs, a mental health screening provides a quick, anonymous, and effective way to recognize individuals who are at risk for treatable mental health disorders. Community organizations can choose to play a major role in shaping the overall health and wellness of its members by increasing access to knowledge and screenings.
Programming to fit your organization’s needs.
No two community organizations are exactly alike. These differences can impact how our programming is implemented. Our staff works with you to mold the program for your audience to ensure it reaches those who need it most. Hospitals, mental health clinics, churches, and cities are just a few of the diverse organizations that utilize our programming.
Accessible reporting: getting a clear picture of your community’s mental health.
Our reporting provides you with information about how the screening URL is being used, patterns or trends on in your community, site traffic, and device used. This information will help you evaluate the effectiveness of your promotional efforts.
Join in the nationwide effort to reduce mental health stigma
Our national screening days provide a great opportunity to check in with individuals about their mental health. Reducing stigma and creating social change begins with educational and awareness efforts. Let your community members know that their mental health is as important as their physical health. Our national events include:

National Depression Screening Day
February 22-28, 2015
National Eating Disorder Awareness Week

Privacy & Liability
Anonymity: The driving force for online screenings.
Our dedication extends beyond our clients to those who choose to complete our online screenings. Preservation of the anonymity of the screening participant is a core value and objective for us. As users navigate within the site, no employer, healthcare company, or sponsoring organization can identify any individual who has taken a screening. We are committed to protecting your personal privacy.
The only information that can be collected and reported is aggregate in nature and pertains to general information regarding the number of screenings that take place, the results of the screenings, and general demographic information. More information related to privacy and security.
