Mental Health of America Tools
Online screening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition. Mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, are real, common, and treatable. And recovery is possible.

Back to School Toolkit '23
This year, Mental Health America Recognizes with our 2023 Back to School Toolkit that our youth are having "All the Feels" as they enter the new school year. These resources look at the issues young people face that are having an impact on their mental health and offer tips on how to deal with these issues and the resulting emotions. The MHA toolkit can also help parents and school personnel better understand the issues, such as the effects of social media on youth mental health and how to be supportive.
Where to start - Book
Thank you for your interest in Where to Start! Due to high volume, please allow us 1-2 weeks to process your order.
Are you looking for some direction and unsure where to start your mental health journey? Our Where to Start book helps individuals struggling with mental health find some direction and resources.
Using a jargon-free approach, we provide information on understanding warning signs, symptoms, and options for individuals and their mental health journey.
The book is divided into four parts:
Part One: Am I Okay? dives into the symptoms and causes of various mental health conditions in an understandable format and a self-assessment quiz to understand what's happening within your own head.
Part Two: Talking About It shares ways for readers to discuss their mental health needs with parents, caretakers, or friends, including handling awkwardness or questions. Coupled with worksheets to help make the conversations flow better, this chapter takes the stigma out of talking about mental illness in a way that will help the reader get the help they need faster.
Part Three: Getting Help dives into the various types of mental health assistance available across the US. Including telehealth, hotlines, hospitalization, medications, and more, Where to Start provides an outlet to understand the type of treatment that may work best for you.
Part Four: DIY Mental Health Practices provides helpful tips and tricks so readers can care for themselves at home or take action to prevent further escalations or symptoms. A resource list at the end provides organizations and websites for further information and help.
We partnered with our friend and cartoonist, Gemma Correll, to fill the book with engaging and humorous illustrations to help us navigate life's struggles and the powerhouse of Penguin Random House to get this resource into the hands of as many people as possible.
