Emotional wellness is a continuum – just like physical wellness. Sometimes you’re very healthy; sometimes you’re less healthy.
For teens, emotional wellness includes the ability to cope with emotions and handle stress. Poor emotional wellness can put a teen at risk for suicide.
You may wonder whether your teen’s emotional struggles are typical or something more serious. Wellness Screen helps you figure that out. It gives you a chance to help your teen before emotional needs become severe or, for some, life-threatening.
Just like vision and hearing, emotional wellness is a major factor in your teen’s academic success and quality of life – your teen’s ability to “BWell2Excel.”
You must provide consent for your teen to be screened. Your teen also assents to the screening.
If your teen’s screening indicates that your teen might have an emotional wellness need, a Wellness Screen staff member will contact you. If all is well, you will not hear from Wellness Screen.
You may contact Wellness Screen staff at any time with questions.
Note: Connected Community Wellness Screen makes no diagnoses or treatment recommendations. We inform parents about possible needs and connect teens with professionals who can assess them appropriately.
