Online Mental Health Tests | Health Assessment Training

The following tests assess various aspects of mental health, and are intended to educate case-workers and corrections professionals on identifying diagnoses of personality disorders (psychopathy, aggression, schizotypy), mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar, suicidal ideation), and psychoses among their clients. Recently-sentenced offenders usually complete a battery of offender intake questionnaires upon entry into prison. These assessments help case workers and correctional staff classify the offender to a given security-level for purposes of risk-assessment, and plan a course of training both inside the institution and upon re-entry into the community. The psychology of criminal conduct helps provide a framework for the use of these tools in the correctional environment. Some of them may also be used by clinicians asked to testify before a court as to a defendant's fitness to stand trial or as part of an insanity defence plea.
