Mental Health Resources

If you think you’re struggling with your mental health and would like to learn more about what kind of help maybe beneficial to you, please explore the following self-quizzes. These tools do not replace therapy or offer you a diagnosis, but can be used as a guide for understanding your experience. If you have any questions, concerns, or reflections regarding your results, we recommend you call our Outpatient Mental Health Clinic at (515) 282-5695.
