Screening Data

Our Mental Health Screening program identifies help-seeking populations, earlier than ever before.

This gives us valuable insight into mental health concerns of our community and the opportunity to address issues long before they become Stage 4 crises. Because most screeners have never been diagnosed with a mental health condition previously, it is the only comprehensive, real-time data resource in the nation that can quantify the mental health impact of COVID-19 in the broad population. We have 15 different tests available at screening.mhanational.org/screening-tools?ref=MHAHouston
