Gauging perspective of self within mental illness.

How we see or identify with ourselves can change drastically after a mental illness diagnosis. The purpose of this survey is to gauge how important it is for mental health patients to "re-learn" how to see ourselves in a more positive and uplifting way.

* 1. In general, how would you rate your overall mental or emotional health?

* 2. During the past 4 weeks, how bothered did you feel by emotional problems such as feeling anxious, depressed, irritable, or sad?

* 3. Have you been diagnosed with any of these disorders?

* 4. Have you sought treatment for your particular diagnoses?

* 5. If yes, what treatments have you sought/are currently using?

* 6. Have you felt a loss of identity since your diagnoses?

* 7. Are you interested in learning how to overcome the negative self talk and become more positive?

* 8. Would any of these self care methods be of any interest to you?
