    • Screening for Mental Health, Inc. Disclaimer

      Screening for Mental Health, Inc. (SMH) is a non-profit organization that provides educational screening programs for certain mental health conditions. This website does not provide medical advice and is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, or treatment. For an accurate diagnosis of a mental health disorder, you should seek an evaluation from a qualified mental health professional. If you feel you're experiencing a potentially life-threatening problem, please call 911 or the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK(8255).

      A core value and objective of Screening for Mental Health’s Online Screening Program is to preserve the anonymity of the screening participant. As users navigate within the site, no employer, healthcare company, or sponsoring organization can identify any individual who has taken a screening. We are committed to protecting your personal privacy.

      The only information that can be collected and reported is aggregate in nature and pertains to general information regarding the number of screenings that take place, the results of the screenings, and general demographic information.

      1. What information is collected by mentalhealthscreening.org and how is it used?

      We do not collect any information about you that allows us or our sponsors (such as employers, health care companies, or universities) to identify you. Instead, we only collect basic demographic information about each user, such as their age, gender and marital status. This information does not allow us to identify you as an individual.

      We collect this information to allow us to provide our sponsors with general, aggregated reports about the people using our site. These reports allow our sponsors to create services more targeted to the needs of their constituents. For example, we provide our sponsors with the percentage of men and women using our site.

      When you complete a test, we collect the responses to each question. We save these responses in order to provide you with the results of the test and to create the aggregated reports provided to our sponsors.

      2. Does mentalhealthscreening.org use cookies, clear GIFs or log files?

      Our site does not use clear GIFs (also known as ‘pixal tags’ or ‘web beacons’). We use cookies to improve your browsing experience and enable certain features or functionality.

      We also measure statistics about visitors to the site and their usage e.g. where they came from, what pages they visit and what browser they are using. Knowing how our site is being used means we can improve our user’s experience in the future. We do not use cookies for advertising purposes or pass user data to any other organization.

      All cookies used on this site are listed in the cookie policy section.

      We do not collect information about our users through log files. However, the company to which we outsource our web hosting function may collect the domains previously viewed by our visitors. However, Screening for Mental Health does not obtain this information and it is never shared with any other entity.

      3. What security protections are in place on mentalhealthscreening.org?

      mentalhealthscreening.org has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security. To prevent unauthorized access and ensure the appropriate use of information, Screening for Mental Health has put into place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures that safeguard and secure our Web site.

      4. What policies apply to links out to third party sites?

      mentalhealthscreening.org includes links to other Web sites that we think may be useful for our users. When you enter other Web sites, they will be operating under their own privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of the Web sites you visit.

      5. How will I know if mentalhealthscreening.org changes its policies around privacy?

      If we change our policies, we will post them on our Web site at least thirty days in advance of the new policy going into effect. To ensure you are aware of changes to our policy, we post the effective date at the beginning of our policy. Screening for Mental Health reserves the right to change our policy at any time.

      The screening tools on this site are not intended to be used by individuals under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 and are interested in learning more about mental health services, we encourage you to talk to your parents or guardians about seeing a physician or qualified mental health professional for a complete evaluation.
