Introducing Give Me 5

A screening tool for well-being.
Give Me 5 uses a triangulated approach to screening, taking into
account multiple views to identify those needing assistance, quickly and accurately.

Mental health literacy programs lead to better outcomes for adolescents with mental health disorders, by facilitating help seeking behavior or by equipping adults with the necessary knowledge to intervene and seek help on young peoples’ behalf.

Why do we need screening tools?

Screening identifies needs proactively and enables focused use of schools’ limited money and time.

Universal screening provides aggregated data & population health management for each school, district, and county. Screening brings to light the symptoms that are often difficult to detect, even by those closest to the child.

Stigma leads many youth to conceal their distress and they need a safe, private way to ask for help.  Screening is the first step of aggressive efforts to change the alarming increase in anxiety, depression, and and suicide rates.

Why screening in schools?

Schools are particularly well-suited for implementing mental health literacy programs, due to the ability to reach a large number of adolescents.

Why Give Me 5?

Give Me 5 uses a triangulated approach to screening, taking into
account multiple views to identify those needing assistance, quickly and accurately.

Give Me 5 checks in with children and other key people in their lives, such as parents, teachers, coaches & counselors.

We combine all of this information, along with their school performance, to gain clear insight into the child's well-being.

We provide practical insights on needs and trends, allowing for early identification and intervention.

A note from our CEO
Effective Screening is the Critical First Step.

We face a crisis in the U.S. - more youth struggle with psychological distress at deeper levels than ever before.  The rates of suicide and depression are at alarming levels. At the same time , it is clear that as parents, teachers, friends, and professionals, we are limited in our ability to accurately read the signs and symptoms of distress before acute behaviors develop–even in those close to us.

The current mental health screening framework for children and teens in school settings is simply not adequate to proactively identify students in distress or provide systemic prevention solutions.  The available models take too long, have too many false positives, and don’t account for stigma.

Give me 5 is the Solution.
