Mental Health Screening Gone Wild!

This website offers up some interesting information - including a peek at the surveys that schools are using to do mental health assessments. It features questions which interpret being self conscious when standing in front of a group of people, or being nervous before a big game in school as being signs of mental illness. It also asks personal questions and looks to me like if a kid hadn't thought about these things before, like committing suicide, that it could very well put the idea into their heads. Who out there doesn't have a daughter that has changed outfits more than twice a day? Check it out. This is one instance when exposure (of mental health surveys) is good.
