Pediatric Mental Health Screening Tools

Based upon the AAP’s Mental Health Toolkit (2010) and the AAP policy statement on behavioral health integration into pediatric primary care (2009), this educational opportunity is 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. Clinicians learn about two mental health screening tools and are provided with copies of each:  the Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional-Second Edition and the Pediatric Symptom Checklist-17. A clinic-specific list of resources is shared. This activity is designated for up to 1.0 hours of participation for CME for physicians and nurse practioners.
