Thank you for taking the time to visit the VMI Mental Health Screening Tool. VMI Center for Cadet Counseling welcomes you to the online screening for eating disorders, alcohol issues, anxiety disorders, and depression. The free screening is made available to all VMI cadets and is taken anonymously. The screening is provided so that you may find out, in just a few minutes, whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you.

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.

Please note that on-line screenings are not a substitute for counseling or evaluation by a mental health professional. The screening provided can allow you to see if your symptoms may be consistent with a number of mental health issues. If the results you receive are concerning to you, we encourage you to contact the Center for Cadet Counseling at 540.464.7667 or email Karen Kirkpatrick to schedule an appointment for an initial assessment. Services offered through Cadet Counseling are available to full-time Cadets and are free of charge and kept confidential. If you need immediate assistance or for an emergency come directly to the Center for Cadet Counseling (located on the 2nd floor of the VMI Infirmary) during business hours (0800-1430) or after hours please go directly to the VMI infirmary or call 911 if necessary.
