You’re doing a good job of dealing with life’s ups and downs. Mental health is key to our well-being; we can’t be truly healthy without it. Mental health involves how we feel, think, act, and interact with the world around us. It’s about realizing our potential, coping with the normal stresses of life, and making a contribution to our community. Everyone should practice good mental health. It helps protect you from mental illness, and it can help you get the most of out of life.

The Bounce Back Today quiz is for educational purposes only. It is not a substitute for professional advice. The quiz cannot diagnose a mental health condition but it is based on good evidence and may give a sign whether or not screening with validated instruments is a good next step. Regardless of your score, if you are concerned about your mental well-being, it’s best to talk to someone you trust. Diagnosis should only be done by a qualified professional. This quiz has been adapted from material from two non-profit organizations in the UK: the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Stress Management Society.
