Screenings & Education
Empower individuals with the information to act
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 students who are at risk for treatable mental health disorders.
A student scores positive—now what?
Whether a student takes an online screening in the privacy of his or her dorm room or stops by a screening day event on your campus, the next step is connecting students with quality treatment options. If a student scores positive at an event, the clinician on hand will speak with them about the services available on campus or locally in the community. If they are taking the screening online, they are provided with referral information directly upon receiving their results.

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.
