DoD Mental Health Self-Assessment (MHSA) Program This site offers a mental health and alcohol screening and referral program for military families and service members affected by deployment and mobilization.

Anonymous self-assessments are available for depression, bipolar disorder, alcohol use, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and generalized anxiety disorder. Individualized results and military health resources, including TRICARE, VA Centers, and Military OneSource, are provided at the end of every assessment. Online assessment tools can be accessed here.
