Rapid Adolescent Prevention Screening (RAAPS) youth risk screening tools are now reimbursable under Texas Health Steps (THSteps)
We’re excited to announce RAAPS, a validated risk identification and coaching tool for youth, as of June 1, 2021 has been included as one of the screening tools THSteps providers may choose when completing mental health screenings in adolescents during well visits.
RAAPS age-specific screenings can be completed independently by youth in just 5 minutes. Upon completion, youth receive tailored risk reduction coaching messages to initiate positive change and support your prevention efforts, making it easy to integrate RAAPS into your workflow.
Annual youth mental health screening is a recommendation of leading medical authorities, including the American Academy of Pediatrics. With 32% of youth reporting mental health as a major source of stress (versus 26% pre-pandemic) – screening for mental health risk is more important than ever.
