Goals of these health and wellness resources

Please note that although many of these tools are formal diagnostic tools, they are not designed in this context to provide definitive diagnoses. They are generally well respected and validated inventories and formulas designed to achieve the following:
N

Act as an effective screening test to help you decide whether you might in fact have a particular condition or problem

N

Provide guidelines on how best to proceed with that problem (with moderate to severe symptomatology a visit to the relevant healthcare practitioner is always encouraged)

N

Provide information on how you are doing across a wide range of areas to aid you in best considering what changes in your lifestyle might be necessary

N

Aid you in picking up potential problems before they become entrenched behaviours, dynamics or pathology

N

Allow for a comparison of how you are doing across time, so you can measure whether your health and wellness lifestyle changes are working, and if you are slipping in any areas
