The Behavioral Health Screen (BHS; Diamond et al., 2010) provides a brief but comprehensive behavioral health screening designed for use in a variety of settings. It is administered electronically and scored instantly, screening for psychiatric symptoms and risk behaviors across 13 domains, including suicide, anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating, bullying, trauma, abuse, sexuality, substance use, safety, school, and family. Through the GLS project, suicide and behavioral health screening has been implemented in SAP liaison agencies, college health/wellness centers, and school districts throughout the commonwealth.
