Mental Disorder

Are You Nuts?

I cut through BCE Place today. CTV was taping a news segment for an announcment of the new website Check Up from the Neck Up.ca.

I received a small flyer complete with a pin of the website's new logo, which is a nut. The ad says,

It's simple on-line test, and it can be the best thing you do all day. Just a few questions can help tell you whether your moody moments are okay, or if a doctor should know about them.


If you waste your time and do take the test, you'll realize how having basic knowledge of psychological disorders makes the test a joke. The test is practically useless except for the humour factor.

And for the record, my results were:

Mania or bipolar disorder

Your answers indicate a low probability that you've experienced mania/bipolar disorder at some point in your past. You may want to follow the links on this site to learn more about mania/bipolar disorder.

Major or clinical depression

You selected none of the initial indicators for depression while taking this check-up.

Panic disorder

You selected none of the initial indicators for panic disorder while taking this check-up.

Generalized anxiety disorder

You selected none of the initial indicators for generalized anxiety disorder while taking this check-up.


Okay.

Kaitlyn, the whole thing is weird done to the pin, which really is a nut. They're taking mental health seriously but at the same time, taking it not so seriously.
