With the lack of mental health access in our society today, primary care physicians are treating more mental health conditions. A variety of screening tools are available that assist the practitioner in determining the severity of the disease and the success or failure of the treatment.
Choose a patient in your clinical setting and either perform the BATHE, HEEADSSS, PHQ-9 (free apt), or any screening tool listed in your textbooks. Write which one you choose, what it stands for, why you choose it, your results, and the recommended treatment.
