Do I need to go to a mental hospital?

This is a quiz that will tell you if you need to go to a mental hospital and receive professional help with your mental health. If you do, do not be ashamed. You aren't crazy, it is more common than you think. Talk to someone. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger because of their mental health, please call 911 (USA), 999 (UK), or 1-800-276-3599 (for suicidal thoughts/plan).

Please be aware that this is my first quiz, and it is, in no way, a replacement for an actual psychiatrist's opinion. I made this so people who are struggling can see if they might really need to go to the hospital. It isn't always fun, but sometimes, it's the only option. Please stay safe.
