Mental Health Check-in

Mental health and wellness are a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should consider seeing a mental health professional – like a checkup from your neck up. This program is completely anonymous and confidential; immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations, and resources.
