3 SHORT MENTAL HEALTH SELF-TESTS IN ONE ARTICLE

Are you depressed? Do you have chronic anxiety? Or do you maybe have PTSD symptoms? The 3 following 10 question mental health self-tests can tell you more than you might think.

Just because a mental health assessment tool is short, does not mean it's not very good. Take the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Test. Like the 3 tests in this article, the ACE Test is also only 10 questions long, but it is considered to be a gold standard in determining how your abusive childhood may have affected your well-being as an adult.

You can take each of the 3 tests below. One helps diagnose depression, the second shows if you struggle with anxiety, and the third test is for symptoms of PTSD and trauma. 

Each one will only take you about a minute.

WHY TRIGGER WARNINGS ARE THE WORST THING EVER

Trigger Warning!

The honesty and upfront language in this article might upset some people. But it shouldn’t. They’re just words on a screen. I wrote this article to help people, not to harm. 
I want every person who reads this to be happy, healthy, and have an amazing, fulfilling life.

I am in a lot of online groups. Some are related to what I do for a living, some are about depression or EMDR Eye Movement Therapy or things like neuroscience and mental health. Others are tied to problems I have had in my family like addiction, PTSD, and abuse.

The reason I am in these groups is to read what others have to say about their problems, to learn new things, and also to actively participate by talking about my own difficulties.

And it is in these groups (and frankly it seems in every corner of the internet) that I see the ever-growing problem of people using Trigger Warnings before posting content.

This is a huge problem-here's why.

Unfortunately for people who have depression and low self-esteem, addictions, and other mental health problems, feeling negative about yourself tends to become a day-to-day norm. And just as unfortunately, having an ingrained set of quality, loving positive beliefs can seem pretty foreign.
