Clinic begins social, emotional screening
WILLMAR, Minn. -- Even the littlest patients need attention to their emotional health.
A new initiative at Affiliated Community Medical Centers is incorporating social and emotional screening during the standard 18-month well-child checkup to assess how these youngsters are faring emotionally.
By screening more children more consistently, it's hoped that worrisome issues can be identified sooner so that families can be referred to resources that would best help them.
