Military Pathways Mental Health Screening

military pathwaysBeing in the military alone can be severely stressful.  Adding a family, or a war, or threat of war to the equation definitely makes it much more stressful.  This website is tied in with the United States Department of Defense and the nonprofit organization, Screening for Mental Health, who are trying to find via assessments if a military man or woman is experiencing traumatic events.

For instance, these assessments will help a person find out whether or not they might have some common mental health issues including, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, alcohol problems and more. Of course, just as with Psych Central, the screening will not provide a diagnosis – for that you need to see your own professional.   It will help point you towards a direction, tell you what you might have and where best you can seek assistance.

Best of all, your screening can be anonymous.  No one will come up and show your results and say this is Dr. Clyde’s results.  This will definitely help you if you feel you need the help.  Don’t wait any longer!

student mental illness lifeline

SMILe was formed in 2008 after its founder discovered that she was not the only one suffering in (relative) silence through University with mental illness. Students she talked to felt their universities didn’t want to admit their students were ‘unhappy’, especially in the long term, and that as students their vulnerability was overlooked.

One of the worst parts of mental illness is that it is so emotionally draining that looking and fighting for the help and support you need becomes almost impossible. SMILe was set up to make finding the right information and help easier. It is built on careful research and the personal experiences of mental illness sufferers from several universities.

We hope you find it helpful. Please get in touch if there is any information that you would like adding to the site or if you find a broken link that needs updating.
