Self assessment quizzes

These quizzes are intended to improve self awareness and are in no way a clinical diagnosis

Work-Life Balance Quiz

Do you find it difficult to balance the different roles in your life? If so, you’re not alone – 58% of Canadians report “overload” as a result of the pressures associated with work, home and family, friends, physical health, volunteer and community service.

Take this quiz to see if you’re in balance.



Check up from the Neck up

Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, are very common. They affect 1 in 5 people at some point and yet few people seek treatment. Sometimes people are afraid to talk about it, or they don't recognize that they're experiencing a treatable health condition. They may not know where or how to get help. This quiz was created to raise awareness about mood disorders and connect people with resources to get help if they need it. An online check-up offers privacy for people who want to learn more, and it's so easy to do that everyone can participate as part of their basic health care routine.


Mental Health Meter

Assessing our mental health is not as simple to do as measuring our physical health. There are no scales or endurance tests that rate mental fitness. But with the help of the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Meter, you can reflect on your unique strengths and identify areas where your level of mental fitness could be improved to help you cope with all of life’s up and downs.
