Consider taking a test to assess your mental health if you’ve noticed changes in how you feel or in your ability to function for the last for two weeks or more. If you’ve found yourself feeling extra tired, irritable, anxious, unfocused, or sad lately, and these symptoms are interfering with your ability to engage in your day-to-day life, these could be signs that you could benefit from mental health treatment.

Online mental health tests can give you a better understanding of your mental health symptoms, but these tests can’t provide you with a diagnosis. A licensed therapist can discuss your test results with you, gather additional information, and then formulate a mental health diagnosis to support your treatment goals.
Online mental health tests, provide a snapshot of the severity of your symptoms at that particular point in time. For more information on the current state of your mental health, consider working with a licensed mental health professional. A therapist or psychologist can gather additional mental health assessment information and test your symptoms at regular intervals to determine a diagnosis and get a more accurate picture of your mental health.
