M3 Team

M3 Information, LLC ( “M3”) grew out of a collaboration of National Institute of Mental Health ( “NIMH”) alumnus and other academic researchers, clinicians, information technology and business people committed to reengineering the detection of mental health disease and streamlining its integration into Primary Care, the point of first contact for a majority (over 70%) of all mood disorder cases. The M3 Checklist research was validated in the Annals of Family Medicine.

The team identified a need to develop a multi condition screen to replace the existing single disease oriented screens that only addressed one form of mental illness. To address these problems, our team focused on a mental health screen that could measure outcomes based on question responses. We developed a 27 question diagnostic checklist and a relate algorithm targeted for adults aged 18 and older named the M3 Checklist , which measures your overall well-being and risk of having a mental health condition.
