We have made it possible for you to do an online screening for eating disorders, alcohol, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and bipolar disorder through our website. After clicking on the button below use “METROSTATE” for your password. Then select the screening that you would like to take. Results are communicated instantly.
