    Before your first visit to your health care professional, fill out a "Quick Screen" form.
 
    Take the "Quick Screen," your completed FREE Mental Health Screening forms, and the  the "Key" to your first appointment. You can then efficiently review and discuss the information with your health care provider. 
 
    Presenting the completed forms to health professionals who do not specialize in treating mental illness may be problematic at times. If your health professional is not comfortable treating mental health symptoms, you may be referred to a specialist. If this happens, don't be discouraged. You have started the process of recovery and have gathered the information needed to obtain the best treatment possible.
 
    Above all, don't take them to your family doctor and insist, "These forms say I'm depressed and I want the antidepressant I saw advertised on TV!".
 
    You obtain the best treatment by developing a cooperative relationship with your health professional.
