What is BounceBack®
IMPORTANT NOTE: Having thoughts of harming yourself or thoughts of death?
Regardless of your score, this quiz does not ask about suicide. However, if you have been having thoughts of harming yourself or thoughts of death, it’s important to get help right away. See your doctor or call the BC Mental Health Support Line which is available in BC 24 hours a day at 310-6789 (no need to enter an area code). For other options for your situation, you can also email us for support at [email protected].
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.
