M3 Checklist: Integrated Screening for
Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and PTSD Concerns

Nationally-recognized, peer-reviewed and clinically validated, the M3 Checklist – offered exclusively through Labcorp – is a 27-question assessment of mood and anxiety symptoms that can be indicative of four common mental health conditions: anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Mental illness is a common health issue that needs to be treated as seriously as physical illnesses.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), any mental illness (or AMI) is defined as “having (currently or at any time in the past year) a diagnosable mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder (excluding developmental and substance use disorders) of sufficient duration to meet diagnostic criteria specified within the DSM-IV, regardless of functional impairment1.”

Routinely evaluating mental health within a primary care setting is an effective way to identify these issues, leading to appropriate diagnoses and treatment. Labcorp is proud to offer an efficient, time saving, and comprehensive tool for screening and monitoring of these issues.

M3 Checklist provides multiple benefits for healthcare providers, including:

  • Integrated screening for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and PTSD concerns.
  • Added detail to help determine severity and comorbid psychological problems, as suggested by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.4
  • Optional assessment for alcohol misuse available by using the AUDIT-C.
  • Secure, easy-to-use web- and mobile-friendly interface that takes patients mere minutes to complete.

Nearly 44 million Americans, or 18.1% of all adults, have dealt with such a disorder in the past year1. Of those, less than half receive needed treatment2.
