Connecting observed behaviors or symptoms to a mood disorder can be confusing and make it difficult to know where to begin your research. Often parents, adolescents, and children want to find out more information so they are better prepared when discussing their experiences with a professional. SCCAP believes in educating parents, adolescents, and children to allow them to take charge of their health concerns and, therefore, is providing a link to a service that provides free assessment measures.
Helping Give Away Psychological Science (HGAPS) has assembled the best of the free evidence-based psychological assessments to provide a safe, confidential starting point for this discovery and determine if you should connect with a mental health professional.
The Surveys provided by HGAPS contain assessments used by mental health professionals to measure a wide range of symptoms. Information derived from these assessments is presented in an easily understandable method
These assessments are entirely confidential, allowing you to have a simple and anonymous way to engage with informational resources. Upon the completion of the questionnaire, you will receive your results and some recommended tools and further reading. You can save a copy to discuss with a professional. The pages also offer tips about when and how to find professional help.
These online tools are NOT a substitute for consultation with a mental health professional and are NOT intended as a diagnosis. Your information is not retained by the HGAPS or SCCAP websites. Your healthcare provider may be able to provide alternative assessments more targeted to your individual situation.
Talk Therapy options supported by scientific evidence are described under the Evidence Based Therapies tab.
