Application of Course Knowledge:
Identify your clinical practicum setting (FAMILY PRACTICE) and a population that you typically see (ADOLESCENTS AND OLDER ADULTS).
Discuss mental health screening tools used at your clinical site. If no screening tools are currently used, which ones would you recommend?
Describe the quality of the mental health care you have observed. Discuss disparities or biases, if any, in the care provided to different members of the population.
Screening opportunities are often missed in vulnerable populations and those with limited access to care. Describe at least TWO changes you recommend in your practice setting and community to increase the frequency of mental health screenings within vulnerable populations.
Integration of Evidence: Provide support from a minimum of one scholarly in-text citation in addition to the textbook.
