The “Stress Check” is an example of how to check your emotional wellness – asking questions about feelings of fatigue, sadness and low spirits. Completing this screening on a tablet at the MAN VAN will help you determine if your recent thoughts or behaviors may be associated with a common, treatable mental health issue. Each screening takes only a few minutes, and at the end you will be presented with information and next steps. We cannot link these screenings to any one individual, so you remain anonymous.
Understanding Your Score:
- 0-8 – Symptoms are not consistent with depression. Presence of a depressive disorder is unlikely.
- 9-16 – Symptoms you experience are consistent with depression or anxiety. A complete evaluation is recommended.
- 17-30 – Symptoms are more severe and you are likely to be experiencing depression. A complete evaluation is strongly recommended.
- Item #9 – Further evaluation is strongly recommended for anyone who scores 1 point or more and is thinking about or wanting to commit suicide.
