The HEADS-ED mental health screening tool was initially developed for use with children and youth between the ages of 6 and 18 years presenting to the Emergency Department. It has since been adapted and used in a variety of settings including youth mental health walk-in clinics, centralized intakes, and most recently, to facilitate care pathways between primary care and community-based mental health services. A new version of the tool has been developed for use with children under age 6. Early years mental health providers provided feedback on the initial version of the tool during a previous session with IEMHP. The HEADS-ED Under 6 is now being validated by the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health in collaboration with Children First in Windsor.
