Welcome to the Supporting Families Self-Evaluation webpage.
Below you will find a range of clinically approved, short, self-evaluations, which can help you gain an understanding of your own wellbeing and decide if you may need to seek professional help. Some are about drug and alcohol use, some about mental health and some about overall health and well being.
There is a brief description of each of the evaluation tests, to help you choose what aspect of yourself you would like to find out more about.
All of the evaluations have been designed for adults, although we have included one for children -”The Strengths & Difficulties Questionnaire”. We have included this as it can be a great way to have a conversation with a child/ young person about how they feeling, and managing.
These short questionnaires can only provide you with an indication about your own health and wellbeing, so if you have any concerns, or want more advice we suggest that you contact your GP, or please do give us a call at any of our offices, and we can help you find the services you need.
Just choose the evaluation you’d like to take by clicking on it. Complete the form by clicking the answers that have the best fit for you, enter your email address at the bottom and click “submit”.
Your completed evaluation will be emailed to you at the address you give. You may use that information to start a discussion about your health and support needs with someone else, or do the evaluations regularly and keep an check on your own progress and needs.
Please do contact us, or any health service provider if you would like to talk abut your results.
