Community Behavioral Health works to make sure all members are receiving the care and support that they need. This screening program was designed to help with identifying signs of depression and substance use disorder. It is not uncommon for depression and substance abuse to happen at the same time, so these recommended screening tools can be used together to identify both depression and substance use. The Zung Depression Scale has 20 questions that will help identify symptoms of depression and the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) has 10 questions to help identify unhealthy use of alcohol.

The results of the screenings do not necessarily mean you have a certain diagnosis but can be a useful indicator. CBH recommends that you discuss your screening results with a healthcare professional, such as your medical doctor or therapist. If you need help being connected to these services, please contact CBH Member Services.
Please keep in mind that mental health and substance use disorders can be serious and sometimes require emergency help.
