Screening

You may be wondering if you have symptoms of depression. One way to determine this is by taking a brief, confidential, and anonymous screening offered by VA. Only you will see the results, and none of the results are stored or sent anywhere. You can choose to print a copy of the results to keep for your own records or to give to your physician or a mental health professional.

Self-Help Mobile Apps

VA and the Department of Defense have designed the following mobile apps specifically to support Veterans in self-managing their mental health conditions. These apps can be used independently or alongside therapy and/or other mental health treatment.
