US Military starts on-line Mental Health Screening

The US Defense department recently announced that it has started to offer on-line mental health screening. While we think that the screening tests are a great addition and we congratulate them on their progressive thinking, unfortunately the screening tests do not offer any tests for schizophrenia-related symptoms. We've notified them of their missed opportunity.

A recent news story reported:

"Concerned by rising stress levels in the ranks, the Defense Department has quietly started an online self-screening program in hopes that anonymity will help some service members and their spouses overcome reluctance to confront possible mental-health problems.

'It's an excellent tool _ available 24/7 so you can do it at night when nobody's watching,' said Deborah Manning, who coordinates Army substance-abuse programs at Fort Benning, Ga. 'The anonymity can make a big difference to a soldier who's been trained to think, 'I'm macho. I can handle this.''

The web site for the Military mental health testing can be found at the following link:
