The BHS consists of psychiatric symptom scales and risk behaviors that cover all the psychosocial areas suggested by best practice guidelines. Results are immediately scored, summarized, and securely sent to a designated clinician for review. Most clinicians can scan the report within 10 seconds. 

The BHS screens across the following domains:

  • Suicidality
  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Substance Use

  • Eating Disorders

  • Traumatic Stress

  • Self Harm 

  • Psychosis

  • Gun Access

  • Exercise

  • Bullying

  • Physical/Sexual Abuse

  • Work/School Activities

  • Family Environment

  • General Medical

  • Safety Practices


Empirical Support for the BHS

Initially developed through a collaboration with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), bhworks and the Behavioral Health Screen (BHS) have been validated and researched by clinicians and experts in the fields of psychiatry, psychology, and pediatrics. The clinical utility of the tool has been strongly endorsed by a series of evaluations led by Guy Diamond, PhDJoel Fein MD, MPH; and Matt Wintersteen, PhD.
