Screen Yourself Online for a Mental Disorder

I wrote a post recently about how self-diagnosis of bipolar disorder is on the rise. Well, US News and World Report has provided some online self-screening tool sources.

They list: My Mood Monitor, developed by clinicians from Georgetown University, Columbia University, and the Bipolar Collaborative Network.

Also, Depression Screening Test by Ivan Goldberg, M.D. The test is intended to measure symptoms of what could be depression as well as to track changes in your feelings or behavior over time. This type of screening can help differentiate depression symptoms from those of bipolar disorder (for which Goldberg developed a bipolar screening tool).
