Mental health is a crucial part of your overall health condition. Close to 15% of the overall global population that roughly amounts to a billion people, are impacted the world over by Mental illness. It is slowly turning into the unseen killer as people often refuse to take the services of a mental health professional due to the attached stigma as well as delayed diagnosis.
An overwhelming majority of mental health conditions like depression, anxiety etc. are easily treatable and full recovery is highly probable provided there is an early intervention. In this regard, online screening is one of the easiest and fastest ways to figure out whether the symptoms that you are going through attribute to a mental health condition or not. Basically, most of the online assessment tools ask people to reply to specific questions about their mental state and personal experiences and provide the results based upon your replies. The results may help you gauge your mental health state.
In this article we will be exploring 7 popular online Mental Health Assessment tools that you can use. You must note that these tools are only meant to give you a quick understanding and snapshot of your mental health condition based on the symptoms that you are facing. They are not supposed to be used as a conclusive diagnostic tool. If the results give you an inkling of a mental health issue, you must visit your Psychologist / Psychiatrist for further counseling and advice.
