Mental Health Screening Initiative for Primary Care

The Mental Health Screening Initiative is intended to:

  • Augment the standard annual depression screening and follow-up quality measure (i.e. PREV-12), exploring suicidality and anxiety in addition to depression
  • Improve mental health screening rates and follow-up on positive mental health screening results
  • Expand electronic documentation and reporting of Mental Health Screening results and follow-up

Reporting on the Mental Health Screening Initiative is designed to capture the rates of screening for mental health disorders for patient encounters in two distinct time periods: calendar year 2022 and the first seven months of 2023.
