Youth Mental Health Screening Scores Big with US School Districts

(FastNewsMedia Editorial):- Petaluma, Oct 12, 2018 (Issuewire.com) – UK-based YouthinMind Ltd., founded by renowned child psychiatrist and creator of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) Dr. Robert Goodman, recently launched a new operation headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the growing demand for proven and affordable youth mental health tools in the states, we felt it was time to have a US-based team. Said  Mike Smith, Director of YouthinMind Ltd., speaking to us from his London office.

YouthinMind USAs first offering is a full-service online administration and scoring of the SDQ. In the first 2 weeks following the launch of the new US website, www.youthinmindusa.com, school districts in California, Washington, and Illinois have already taken advantage of the service. The administrators at the school districts really appreciate that we handle all the logistics and administration, so they dont have to learn any new software, said Tim Olejniczak, Director of Deployment Services at YouthinMind USA. Ashley Chismark, a social worker at LTUSD stated, The SDQ was utilized as a universal screener at South Lake Tahoe Middle School. It was so easy to administer and provided us with valuable information on how to better service our scholars. The team at YouthinMind were great; they responded quickly and gave assistance every step of the way. Because it was such a great experience, Lake Tahoe Unified School District is looking to implement the SDQ at additional sites.

At $1 per screen, which includes administration, scoring, and reporting, the online SDQ represents perhaps the best value in the youth mental health screening space, especially when viewed against either hand scoring or other commercially available options. We are trying to make our tools as affordable as possible so that universal mental health screening becomes commonplace and interventions can happen early on when they are most effective, said Smith.
