Mental wellness is becoming increasingly tricky to maintain in our busy lives even as stigma decreases and access to care increases. 1 in 5 people in the U.S. have a diagnosable mental health condition yet many do not seek treatment. Early intervention is key to both prevention and successful recovery. Screening tools are widely available and can be used to identify potential needs in a variety of settings, including primary care.

Mental Health America has made ten screening tools easily accessible to the public online: depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD, Youth, Parent (for child concern), alcohol or substance use, psychosis, eating disorder, and work health survey. Their Screening to Supports (S2S) Initiative offers users the ability to self-screen and connect with supports in their community.

Learning Objectives:
1. Examine MHA’s online mental health screening tools and how to interpret individuals’ results.
2. Discuss screening results and recommendations for both national and Hawai‘i trends
3. Review Hawai‘i-based tools, resources and information for mental health.

Trainer is Trisha Kajimura, MPH, Executive Director – MHAH.
