Mental Health Screening has had its share of controversy. Upon the eve of Teenscreen ending in the United States, we have the Federal Health Bill which includes many more programs to mental health screen every single generation. There are no medical and scientific studies that show mental health disorders exist and none that exhibit a benefit from mental health screening.
Recently USA Today ran an article about a new app called “WhatsMyM3”. This is an app designed to determine if you are at risk for depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder or PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). It is not based on any medical or scientific testing and is entirely subjective, leading the person straight into the hands of mental health practitioners.
