 As we continue to promote health and awareness related to mental health initiatives, we wanted to offer a self-evaluation resource.  The below site allows you to answer a few simple questions to gauge where you might need help.  It is not intended to be used as a substitute for a visit with a healthcare professional, but only to help identify if you might need additional resources.  Once you take the assessment – you will be provided a score with comments on next steps.
