Pediatric Mental Health Screening Tools is a one-hour module, which 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, the Early Childhood Screening Assessment and the Pediatric Symptom Checklist (.pdf). A clinic-specific list of resources (such as therapists seeing children with Title 19) is shared. AAP policy statement on behavioral health integration into pediatric primary care (2009).
Pediatric Mental Health Community Resources is 60-minute session will identify relevant mental health resources in your community. Early identification and treatment of children with mental health problems by primary care physicians can reduce disease burden on families and communities. Many primary care physicians want more information on caring for these children. As a follow up to the Pediatric Mental Health Screening Tools training, WISMHI has developed a training titled Pediatric Mental Health Community Resources. Based upon the AAP’s Mental Health Toolkit.
