Mental Health Screening

Because mental health is a key part of your overall well-being, it’s good to find out if you should connect with a mental health professional. A brief screening is the quickest way to do this. This is completely anonymous and confidential. Immediately following the brief screening questionnaire, you’ll see your results, recommendations, and key resources.

Take Your Screening

Make an Initial Appointment

Contact us to schedule your initial assessment appointment. During this appointment, you will be asked several questions that will help us determine the most appropriate care for you. Treatment recommendations will be shared with you at the close of the session.

Upon being scheduled for an initial assessment, you will be asked to sign up on our Client Portal powered by TheraNest. This is a secure, HIPAA-compliant software that allows you to review our consent form, complete an assessment document, and view upcoming appointments. See step-by-step instructions here

Treatment Recommendations May Include:

  • Mental health crisis services (on-call)
  • Extended psychotherapy with a community provider
  • Psychiatric evaluation with a community provider
  • Referral to another University office, such as LU Shepherd, Academic Success Center, Career Center, etc.
