Outliers notes a new campaign is encouraging Americans to take an online test to screen for common mental illnesses. Advocacy group Mental Health America is partnering with M3 Information to let anyone take a three-minute screening for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. At the end, you receive a number that evaluates your mental health.
The campaign is aligned with Mental Health Awareness Month, which had triggered a number of new campaigns, ads and mobile programs aimed at helping people track and monitor their moods. A new mobile app called Mood Watch will even generate a weekly report that collects a user's daily emotions, sleep quality and blood pressure.
