Did you know ?
An 84 - 94% Chance Your Child Will Incorrectly Be Determined to Have a Mental Illness !!!
One of the things TeenScreen fails to openly disclose is that the percent of false-positives for their pencil and paper screening "tool" - called the Columbia Suicide Screen (CSS)- is 84%, which means that the chances of your child walking away falsely labeled as "suicidal" or "mentally ill" is 84%! Click to view PDF document see page 7. The Diagnostic Predictive Scales (DPS)- the computer screening version - has false-positives up to 94%(Lucas et al., 2001). Any screening program with that high a rate of false positives is for all intents and purposes useless. In a study involving ten high schools, the staff reported losing confidence in the screen due to the large number of false positives (Hallfors et al., 2006).

Sorry to hear u embarassed yourself like that.when i was having my manic episode,i thought i was the late rapper 2Pac Shakur & was rapping loudly along the street & was convinced that people who had gathered around me were doing so to witness the resurrected 2Pac.of course i know now they were there to witness the behaviour of just another random delusional & crazy man.
