Mental health screenings are a quick way to determine if you or someone you care about may need to reach out to a doctor or mental health professional for an evaluation. These types of screenings are typically designed to be educational, not diagnostic.

If you are interested in accessing counseling services on your own, we offer a community provider database that can help you find a compatible provider in the community.

Take the pledge and join the new mental illness anti-stigma campaign that is happening in our area through a coalition of Erie County mental health and social services agencies called Join the Conversation – Let’s Talk Stigma.
