According to the National Institute of Mental Health, mental illnesses affect tens of millions of people in the United States each year. It is estimated that only approximately half of the people affected by mental health issues receive treatment.
The chance of developing a mental health disorder can be reduced by taking steps to prevent and control factors that put people at greater risk. HealthAware’s Mental Health Risk Assessments allow users to assess their current health status and identify risk factors that may lead to the development of mental health illness. Participants are then provided the resources needed to take action to seek assistance and/or reduce their level of risk.
Our Mental Health Risk Assessment Program includes:
AnxietyAware is designed to help participants understand their risks for having or developing an anxiety disorder by answering questions relating to their feelings, actions and emotional responses or statuses in certain situations. Participants are scored on a scale ranging from no anxiety to extremely severe anxiety.
Anxiety disorders affect about 40 million American adults aged 18 years and older (about 18%) in a given year, causing them to be filled with fearfulness and uncertainty. Unlike the relatively mild, brief anxiety caused by a stressful event (such as speaking in public or a first date), anxiety disorders last at least 6 months and can get worse if they are not treated.
The chance of developing an anxiety disorder can be reduced by taking steps to prevent and control factors that put people at greater risk.
AddictionAware is designed to help participants to identify if they have a problem relating to addiction by answering questions relating to alcohol and drug use.
Some habits and actions may be pleasurable but over time may become compulsive and interfere with ordinary life responsibilities such as work, relationships, or maintaining good health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others. Taking a risk assessment is a good first step to understanding whether you have a problem.
DepressionAware is designed to evaluate each participant’s risk for having or developing depression. The risk assessment includes questions focusing on how often and significantly a person is bothered by various problems, situations, and mental states.
