Universal Screening Brief
The MHN produced the Universal Screening Brief which offers a number of tools and resources to support the implementation of universal screenings within the areas of interest as detailed in the strategic plan (areas of behavioral health, alcohol and other drug use, intimate partner violence, and healthy habits.)
The Brief explains
1) why universal screenings are beneficial to those who are pregnant, and the evidence-based practices recommended for pregnant people and people of reproductive age who may become pregnant, 2) provides a review of assessment tools to support screenings in each area of interest, and 3) offers an effective framework for how to effectively implement universal screenings. The brief was developed to be used throughout the Network and was not structed to a specific industry or professional type.
