Screenings & Education
Identify those at-risk in minutes.
Mental health and wellness professionals are turning to mental health screenings as a viable way to identify potential 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 people who are at risk for common and treatable mental health disorders.
A person scores positive—now what?
Whether a person takes an online screening on their own or stops by a screening day event you sponsor, the next step is connecting him or her with quality treatment options. If a person scores positive at a screening event, the clinician on hand will speak with him or her about the services available in the community. If a user takes a screening online, he or she will receive your referral directly upon receiving their results.

Privacy & Liability
Anonymity: The driving force for online screenings.
We recognize that service members, veterans, and their families make sacrifices for the U.S. Military and surrender some privacy. However, the mental health screenings are completely anonymous. 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 users’ 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.
