Screening Tool To Help Determine Emotional Health Risk.

USA Today (5/30, Healy) reports on screening tool Whats MyM3, which “can tell if you’re at increased risk for depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).” Psychiatrist Steven Daviss, MD, of M3 Information, said that “WhatsMyM3 (originally My Mood Monitor) can help adults, whether in treatment or not, ‘monitor their own symptoms and have a view of what’s going on’ in terms of mood and anxiety.” Psychiatrist Robert Post, MD, former chief of biological psychiatry at the National Institute of Mental Health and one of the WhatsMyM3 developers, added that “many of those in need of treatment are seen in a primary care setting; yet their emotional health ‘never really comes up for discussion’ and goes untreated.”
