TeenScreen Primary Care offers free support to health professionals
TeenScreen Primary Care offers free support to health professionals working to implement an annual mental health screening for adolescent patients. Mental health screening is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and is a required component of routine care for new plans under the 2010 health reform legislation. Mental health checkups can determine if adolescent patients are suffering from depression, anxiety or other conditions or are at risk for suicide. Medical offices, emergency rooms and insurers across the United States are working with TeenScreen Primary Care to offer mental health checkups to teens.
