​Newly Released: Playbook on Universal Screening in Schools

Screening is an opportunity for students to identify the coping skills that work for them, and it is more cost effective and accurate than training teachers to identify hidden warning ​signs. With this in mind, the Office of Children's Mental Health has released a playbook on universal screening in schools. 

The guide, School-Based Wellness Screening, In Brief, breaks down how schools can start universal screening in 12 manageable steps. 

Find additional resources on our School Mental Health webpage​ or in our Universal Screening Fact Sheet​.
