Self Assessment and Mental Health Screenings

The Center for Cadet Counseling offers a free online screening tool, the VMI Mental Health Screening Tool, for eating disorders, alcohol issues, anxiety disorders, depression, and other concerns. The screening is available to VMI cadets and may be taken anonymously from your own computer. This screening tool can help cadets determine whether or not professional consultation would be helpful.

Anonymous Mental Health Self-Assessment Tool

The online screening process is anonymous and confidential. The VMI Center for Cadet Counseling does not collect any identifying information such as names, e-mail or IP addresses. Neither our office nor the sponsoring organizations can view your individual results.

Online screenings are not a substitute for counseling or evaluation by a mental health professional. The screening may indicate if symptoms are consistent with mental health issues. If you have concerns about screening results, call 540.464.7667 or email  cadetcounseling@vmi.edu to schedule an appointment.

ULifeline at VMI

ULifeline is another anonymous, confidential, online resource where cadets may comfortably search for information regarding mental health and suicide prevention. ULifeline is available anywhere, anytime online.
