Mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, are real, common and treatable. And recovery is possible. But not all of us think about our mental health enough.
The Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s NJMentalHealthCares Helpline offers free, anonymous online mental health screenings in cooperation with Mental Health America. Self-assessments are available for depression, anxiety, substance abuse, PTSD and bipolar disorder, as well as screens for youth and parents.
Taking a screening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition.
After you complete a screening, you’ll receive customized feedback and be provided a zip code search to locate local assistance in determining next steps. You may even want to print out the results and review them with your healthcare provider.
The NJ MentalHealthCares Help Line staff offers telephone counseling, information and referral and assistance in helping to get the behavioral health services needed by you or a loved one. For assistance or more information, please call our toll-free, confidential number: 866-202-HELP (4357) (TTY 877-294-4356).
