Take a screening and get a check up from the neck up! Free screenings for ECU students and employees are available at https://screening.hfihub.com/ECU. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a behavioral health professional. Think of these as a checkup from your neck up. This program is completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.
