How Are You Feeling? The Utah Department of Human Services offers an anonymous mental health screening tool that can be performed online to determine if you or someone you care about may need to reach out to a doctor or mental health professional for an evaluation.

Worried about your Child? Take the Child Mind Institute’s brief online assessment here: http://www.childmind.org/en/health/symptom-checker. Here’s how it works: You indicate the behaviors that are making you concerned about your child by answering a series of questions. The Symptom Checker analyzes your answers to give you a list of psychiatric or learning disorders that are associated with those symptoms.
If you think your child is going through emotional or behavioral issues, Mental Health America has an online screen that parents can take to see if their child is at risk for a variety of mental health disorders at: http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/mental-health-screening-tools
Emotional Wellness is just as Important as Physical Wellness. If you’re feeling suicidal, please talk to somebody.
