If you feel like you might be struggling but aren’t sure if you should contact a mental health professional, consider taking a quick assessment to help guide your decision.
The department of Mental Health and Counseling offers a free, confidential, and anonymous online mental health assessment to all Yale students, regardless of insurance provider or Yale Health membership.
The screening, formatted as a questionnaire, takes about five minutes to complete. Based on your answers, the assessment will generate results, provide you with relevant information, and guide you to appropriate services and resources. This assessment does not provide a diagnosis but helps you figure out if what you’re experiencing may be caused by a mental health issue. If so, recommendations for seeking help are provided.
The screening website also offers articles and information on a variety of mental health-related topics, including resiliency, college life, managing stress, and parent resources.
