Confidential Online Self-Assessment

Unsure whether you should seek help for yourself or a family member? Take our confidential online self-assessment. A few simple questions will help identify common symptoms for depression, anxiety, adolescent depression, bipolar, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorder, alcohol or substance use disorders.


For Personal Use Only.  This is not a diagnosis. After your self-assessment, please call the LifeWays 24-Hour Access Crisis Line at 1.800.284.8288 to be screened for community mental health services or come in during business hours if you prefer a face-to-face screening.
