Frequently Asked Questions
You have questions? We’ve Answers
Why monitor my mental health?
Mood and anxiety disorders are serious conditions that can affect not only your quality of life but also your physical health.
An untreated mood or anxiety disorder can increase your risk of many physical illnesses, including headache, high blood pressure, diabetes, IBS and heart attack, and likewise can interfere with the treatment of these very conditions, which extends as
well to arthritis, epilepsy, colitis, psoriasis, cancer and asthma.

Who benefits from taking this test?
Anyone 18 years or older will benefit from completing this test because receiving an accurate picture of your symptoms and risk leads to more effective treatment.
I’ve taken other FREE tests before. Why should I take this test?
Existing tests evaluate your responses for a single mental health condition. For example, the PHQ-9 checks for depression, and the GAD-7 looks for anxiety, and while these and other conditions typically overlap and change over time, these other instruments check no other related mental health issues.
This single-condition approach results in under-recognition and misdiagnosis of many other common conditions.
M3 Checklist measures your overall well-being and risk of having a mental health condition.
Does this report replace a clinical psychological or psychiatric evaluation?
No. This report does not replace the professional. Rather, clinicians may make good use of this report in their diagnostic process. You should certainly consider taking your report to a clinician for validation and follow-though.
Mental health assessment costs more than $200, why this test is a fraction of that cost?
Clinicians use a similar checklist in their diagnosis process.
Using data-science, we have developed a unique algorithm that can understand and co-relate your responses and produce the report. We’ve conducted a clinical trial validating these algorithms. This is a cost-effective process and we are passing these savings to you.
