The following tests are informal self-assessment tools and are not intended to substitute for a professional evaluation. Please contact LCL if you would like such an evaluation – confidentially and free of charge.
Alcohol/Drug Self Test
This series of questions about one’s use of alcohol and/or drugs is an informal inventory of “tell-tale signs” with many items tailored to lawyers. It is not a list of official diagnostic criteria and does not substitute for a professional evaluation (which LCL can provide in person).
Here is an on-line depression self-test provided by the UK’s NHS Choices health website.
In reviewing a number of available on-line self-tests for Bipolar Disorder, we observed that they tend to be too inclusive, i.e., most people might score in the bipolar range. Here are some characteristics to consider; this is not a validated test, and there is no score, but if one or more items sound very familiar, we would suggest seeing one of us or another licensed mental health clinician for an evaluation.
