Screening for Health, Wellness, and Wellbeing
Talking with your kids early and often about underage drinking and other drug use can help keep them safe. But how do you know if your child needs more support, and where do you go to find it? The answer is Screen4Success, a new, user-friendly tool from SAMHSA’s “Talk. They Hear You.”® campaign designed to help parents and caregivers better understand the health, wellness, and wellbeing of their children and find resources to address their needs.
Do you have concerns about your child’s health, wellness, and wellbeing? If so, Screen4Success can help you better understand what’s going on in their lives. This 10-minute screener will look for signs of elevated risk and help you find support to address their needs. The Resources section will provide you with recommended support services that are available in your area and at the national level.
How does Screen4Success work?
Screen4Success asks questions about substance use, mental and physical health, general wellbeing, and family life. It provides an easy way for parents and caregivers to identify areas where their children may benefit from additional support. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to fill out the screener with their kids—this provides opportunities for discussion in the moment—but if that’s not possible, they can send it to them to complete on their own.
You can access it on your mobile device through the “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign mobile app. Download this mobile app for free on the App Store, Google Play, and the Microsoft Store. You can find Screen4Success by selecting the Screening button from the app’s main navigation.
