- Identify SBHC clients who have had a documented WCV in the past 12 months but don’t have any risk assessment documentation. Schedule risk assessments with those clients.
- If your SBHC has the ability to conduct the necessary follow-up, work with your school administrators to complete risk assessments of all students.
- Collaborate with a network of mental health providers to complete screening and follow-up, especially if the number of students with needs exceeds your available staff resources.
- When screening for risk behaviors, use an electronic tool such as a tablet or computer so both the medical and behavioral health providers can access the results of the screen.
- Choose an age-appropriate risk assessment tool. For children, consider Bright Futures tools such as the Pediatric Symptom Checklist or the Strengths & Difficulties Questionnaires. For adolescents, consider RAAPS or Just Health. Your state may also have a tool it recommends or requires.
