A medical team has created an app that can actually screen for mental illness!

You just prick your finger and place a drop of blood on your screen.

JK! LOLz!

The app, called WhatsMyM3 can tell if you're at an increased risk for depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The $2.99 app is meant to help adults "monitor their own symptoms and have a view of what's going on" when it comes to mood and anxiety levels.

It's basically just a survey you can take to assess your current mood and give you a readout about your risk of a mental disorder.

Apparently 1 in 5 adults has a mental illness but only about 60% of them get treatments.

A psychiatrist who's a fan of the app said:

"It helps give you a normative sense of what's in bounds and out of bounds [for mental health.] That can be helpful for anybody who's curious about or worried about how they're doing."

So you not sure if you're anxious or if it's just gas? Get the app or take the quiz HERE!
