This presentation will define the prevalence of behavioral health (BH) conditions in our culture, address frequently occurring co-morbid health conditions that often obscure their detection and subsequent treatment, and introduce validated screening tools that are successfully used to detect many BH conditions across settings. Appropriate times and environments to utilize the screenings will be discussed with a particular emphasis on the potential value of integrating BH screenings into PASRR Level I evaluations.
