Making Mental Health Screening Useful in Schools (86 minutes) LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 1. Differentiate between frameworks and purposes of school mental health screening; 2. Understand how to match appropriate screening methods and procedures with different frameworks and purposes; 3. Apply different approaches to mental health screening to real-life, school-based practice situations. ABSTRACT: School mental health screening is widely recognized as a pivotal practice for promoting early, efficient, accessible, and equitable mental health services for youth. Yet screening has become more complex in recent years and is no longer considered a single, unified practice. Rather, screening is more like a set of practices that serve different and complementary purposes to promote mental health. This introductory webinar will help attendees understand how to make mental health screening useful in schools by (1) differentiating between frameworks and purposes of school mental health screening and (2) understanding how to match appropriate screening methods and procedures with these different frameworks and purposes. Applied case examples will also be provided to illustrate the usefulness of different approaches to mental health screening in schools.
