How can online mental health testing help me?

What do my mental health test results mean?

Please note: Online screening tools are meant to be a quick snapshot of your mental health. If your results indicate you may be experiencing symptoms of a mental illness, consider sharing your results with someone. A mental health provider (such as a doctor or a therapist) can give you a full assessment and talk to you about options for how to feel better.

This website is an informational resource. We are not a crisis support line. If you need immediate help, you can reach the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline by calling or texting 988 or using the chat box at 988lifeline.org/chat. You can also text “MHA” to 741-741 to reach the Crisis Text Line. Warmlines are an excellent place for non-crisis support.

For all other screening-related questions and non-emergency support, please use MHA’s Contact Us form.

What mental illness do I have?

The label a mental health professional uses to talk about a specific mental illness is called a diagnosis. An example of a diagnosis might be “generalized anxiety disorder,” or “bipolar disorder II.” There are a lot of different types of mental illness—they go way beyond just “depression.” If you’re pretty sure you’re experiencing a mental illness but you’re not sure which one, where do you start?

Do I need to put a label on it?

You don’t have to have a diagnosis in order to seek help. Some therapists actually prefer not to diagnose their clients. And even people who don’t have a mental illness can benefit from therapy or other mental health treatments. The most important thing is just recognizing that you are going through something and that you could use some help.

Still, it can be nice to have a name for what you’re going through. Labels are there to help you, not to limit you or put you in a box. Finding the right diagnosis can help you:

  • Find helpful information online
  • Connect with other people who have had similar experiences
  • Get the right kind of treatment

For example, if you know you have bipolar disorder, you can Google “bipolar disorder” and find lots of information about it. There are online forums where people talk about bipolar disorder specifically. And there are certain meds that work for bipolar disorder but not for other mental illnesses like anxiety or depression.

So how do I find out what I have?

Sometimes people are able to get a pretty good sense of what condition they might have just from reading about it online and talking to other people who have had similar experiences. But it’s also easy to get carried away. Ever use WebMD to check your physical symptoms and come away thinking you must have some rare disease? It can be the same way with mental health.

A good starting point is to take a mental health test online. The screening tools on this site are the same ones used in a lot of doctors’ offices. They’re scientifically validated, and much more accurate than just reading about something and making a guess. You can use your results to start a conversation with your friends or family, or use them to monitor your progress over time.

Eventually, if you want to be officially diagnosed with a mental illness, you’ll need to meet with a doctor or a therapist. They’ll ask you some questions and use their training and experience to determine whether your symptoms match a particular mental illness. If you can, try to meet with someone who specializes in mental health, like a psychiatrist or a therapist. But your regular family doctor can diagnose common conditions like depression and anxiety. They can also help refer you to a specialist.

Even mental health professionals aren’t perfect. If you’ve been diagnosed with something and you don’t think it’s accurate, it may be a good idea to get a second opinion. And always remember: a diagnosis doesn’t define you—it’s just a way of connecting you with the help you need.

Test for mental disorders

The human psyche is so amazing that it is hardly possible to say something irrefutable, the only correct one about it. This gives rise to many theories and diagnoses. And given the crazy pace of modern life, it is not surprising that the number of people with neurosis or psychosis has increased significantly. This test for mental disorders will help recognize signs of abnormalities or a predisposition to them, if any.

1. Are there things, people, or activities that can quickly and permanently distract you from anxiety, bad mood, or even completely calm you down? nine0003

No, lately nothing makes me happy, and I lose interest in everything that made me happy before.

I have protracted states when nothing can improve my mood. And then I enter another “mode”, and it becomes difficult for me to concentrate, there is chaos in my head, I take on everything at once.

Yes, but most often my mood changes when I suddenly start hearing voices or seeing signs that speak of my exclusivity. Then I feel like a chosen person. nine0003

Yes, these are short but systematic activities that I need to do all the time when I'm worried about something. I understand that I cannot refuse to perform these tasks, I am obliged to do them.

Yes. As a rule, this is the support of loved ones, favorite hobbies, memorable or just pleasant things (graduation photo album, delicious food, good music, etc.).

2. How often do you have negative, pessimistic, or anxious thoughts that make you feel down? nine0003

Often, and such states last for weeks, I can't do my usual activities, I lose interest in old hobbies.

Often and for a long time, and then something suddenly “switches” in me, and I become noticeably more active, more cheerful, I can do in a week what I could not do for months.

Sometimes, while concentrating, remembering something, and thinking in general, it becomes difficult. Sometimes I see strange things.

Systematically. I can't get my mind off these thoughts. At such moments, I begin to perform repetitive actions that calm me down. nine0003

Everything, like everyone else. Sometimes I have negative thoughts, but they have specific reasons.

3. Choose the statement that best suits you.

My affairs, appearance, health, social status are often completely indifferent to me.

I had periods when I obsessively followed other people, believed that there was a conspiracy around me, or suddenly began to abruptly look for life-threatening, extreme sensations.

I sometimes have hallucinations or delusions. Sometimes it is very difficult for me to distinguish the real from the fictional. I do not always distinguish between dream and reality.

I have these “rituals” that I must follow, even if I may be late for work, a flight, or miss an important meeting. This is something like shifting small objects one at a time, senseless actions, accurate counting of objects, etc.

None of the above or the symptoms are subtle.

4. Can you give clear logical explanations for most of your actions? nine0003

I can't see any good reasons to explain my depressed mental state and my physical exhaustion.

I don't know how to explain why I can be depressed for half a year and then become a very energetic person for the next weeks or months.

I myself can understand the reasons for my actions (although not always), but they are far from always logical, and I feel that others around me cease to understand me.

Some of my actions defy logic at all, but I know that I simply have to do them, otherwise something bad will happen. nine0003

In general, yes. I can explain most of my actions from a logical point of view.

5. Do you have a strong long-term desire to avoid contact with anyone, even those closest to you?

Yes, I don't want to see anyone at all, and this goes on for weeks.

Sometimes this feeling happens, but then everything changes dramatically, and I become an oversociable and very active person.

I sometimes want to isolate myself from other people. And if I do, then I feel strange, as if everything around me is unreal. Unusual images, visions may appear. nine0003

I get this desire when I want to punish myself or when I think that my association with people could put my life in serious danger.

I may have a desire to be alone with myself, but it does not last more than a couple of days.

6. Do people around you think that your actions or words are very strange and definitely not normal?

Yes, they think that my apathy and depressed mood are inadequate reactions.

Yes, sometimes they say that I behave like a real psycho-maniac, although they sometimes say that I have a terrible depression that requires the intervention of a doctor. nine0003

Sometimes they literally do not understand my language, they ask me to repeat words or whole sentences, they say that there is absolutely no logic in my reasoning and that this is a sign of deviation.

Yes, they do not understand the reasons for my actions at all and consider me paranoid with unhealthy perfectionism.

Not at all. Sometimes I have misunderstandings with others, but there is nothing critical in them.

7. How often do you have insomnia?

Often. Although there is no objective reason for this, I just lose sleep. This state lasts for weeks, and even months with short breaks. nine0003

Sometimes I can not sleep at all for several days in a row because I am bursting with inner energy. On those days, I feel like I don't need sleep at all.

No/mild insomnia, but it is often difficult to know when sleep ended and wakefulness began or vice versa.

I very often cannot fall asleep under the influence of disturbing, terrifying thoughts for which there are no objective reasons.

In general, I have a normal sleep, and if insomnia occurs, then it happens not so often and always has a reason (stress, disturbed sleep schedule, acclimatization, etc.). nine0003

8. Have you ever thought about intentionally hurting yourself physically?

Yes, I have a desire to mutilate myself or commit suicide.

Such a desire periodically appears, and it lasts for a long time, but then abruptly disappears.

Sometimes I hear voices or other people's thoughts telling me to do something bad to myself.

Under the influence of anxiety, fear, panic, I sometimes cause physical harm to myself without noticing it at first (I scratch the skin until it bleeds, hit, pinch myself). Or I have an obsessive fear of death, infection, injury. nine0003

No, I have no such thoughts or intentional desire to harm myself.

9. Have you ever been diagnosed with any of the following by psychotherapists/psychiatrists?

Depression (any type).

Bipolar disorder (BAD).

Schizophrenia or its varieties.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

None of the above.

10. Is there anything that you fear so much that it really poisons your life and prevents you from enjoying it? nine0003

Yes, it is fear for my future or the future of my loved ones, increased fear of death.

Sometimes I am very worried about the future, and sometimes I am afraid of conspiracies against myself, persecution. There are also moments when I realize that I am not afraid of anything at all.

Sometimes I'm afraid of what's going on in my head. Sometimes I'm scared because I feel like I'm seeing, feeling, or hearing something that doesn't exist or that no one else notices.

I am constantly anxious, I often have frightening or nervous thoughts in my thoughts, which are very difficult for me to get rid of. Often they are groundless. nine0003

I have a few fears, like all people, but in general they do not interfere with my life.

Test for neurosis and its degree

The fast pace of life, haste, constant competition, frequent stressful situations, inability to control one's emotions lead to internal psychological conflicts and exhaustion of the nervous system. Together, this becomes an excellent basis for the development of neuroses. They also cause problems with new situations in life, do not allow you to freely move forward. That is why their treatment and prevention are so important. A neurosis test will determine the presence of this disorder and tell you what to do next
