When to use this resource

Mental health practitioners can use this culturally appropriate screening tool to assess the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients. The tool can not be used to diagnose a particular mental disorder, but it can be used to indicate if a client is at risk of a disorder, such as depression or anxiety.
