Pediatric Mental Health Screening Tools
Based upon the AAP’s Mental Health Toolkit (2010), this is the first in a series of educational opportunities designed to support primary care clinicians in behavioral health provision. This one-hour module reviews AAP recommendations on pediatric mental health screening and some of the literature behind them. Clinicians learn about 3 mental health screening tools and are provided with copies of each: the Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional-Second Edition, the Early Childhood Screening Assessment and the Pediatric Symptom Checklist-17. A clinic-specific list of resources (such as therapists seeing children with Title 19) is shared. This activity is designated for up to 1.0 hours of participation for CME for physicians.
