Are these forms standardized against other accepted
No. They have been compared against other
standard research instruments in a limited number of individuals and have shown similar results. Free Mental Health Screening forms are not meant to be used for research. They gather
information which may prove helpful to you and your health care provider in determining an accurate diagnosis and developing
a treatment plan.
Who developed the FREE Mental Health
These forms have been developed by a Board-Certified Adult, Child, and Adolescent Psychiatrist. They have been used to diagnose
mental health conditions in over 3,000 patients. The forms have been compared with standardized tests used for research in
psychiatry and psychology and produce similar results.
How do I score the forms?
The short answer is, "You don't." Too many variables go into making an accurate diagnosis. The family history,
environmental stressors, health issues, present and past symptoms, overall functioning, and other factors must be considered.
The forms are intended to assist you and a qualified professional in deciding on a diagnosis and instituting a treatment plan.
Will individuals who use the site be
NO! FREE Mental Health Screening does not track individuals who use
the site and will not accept any health information from its users. Outcomes will be collected to determine how many people
have used the site and which pages of the site receive the most traffic.
Will anyone be able to see my completed
forms are in PDF format and cannot be completed on line. You must first download them to your computer and print them before
you can fill them out. They become your forms to use as you wish. It will be important to take a completed copy of the forms
to your health care provider.
