Screening as a Tool for Early Intervention
We know the importance of prevention when it comes to physical illness. Routine checkups, screenings, and general awareness can be effective strategies to recognize early signs of disease and increase chances of recovery. The same is true of mental illness. Early identification of behavioral health needs can lead to early diagnosis and treatment, which results in an improved quality of life. When treatment is initiated in the later, more severe stages of mental illness, it can become costly not only to the individual, but also to the community at large. Early intervention can prevent potential negative outcomes of mental illness including:
- Diminished academic performance and/or school dropout
- Serious impairment in daily functioning
- Loss of relationships and disrupted support systems
Anonymity: The driving force for online screenings
Our dedication extends beyond our clients to those who choose to complete our online screenings. Preservation of the anonymity of the screening participant is a core value and objective for us. As users navigate within the site, no employer, healthcare company, or sponsoring organization can identify any individual who has taken a screening. We are committed to protecting the user’s personal privacy.
Why Data Matters
Our reporting feature provides valuable information about how the screening URL is being used. While the screenings are anonymous, administrators can capture information in aggregate:
- site traffic
- device used
- which mental health screens are most utilized
- breakdown in terms of age, gender, or racial self-identification among users
- patterns or trends among screening users
This critical data will help administrators keep abreast of emerging behavioral health trends and act effectively and quickly to bring needed programming and interventions to their communities.
Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help … anonymous online screenings are a safe first step in gaining information and learning about available resources.
