Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral To services (SBIRT)

The Northshore School District has a long-standing commitment to student health and wellness. As a district we are committed to equity, safety, building on the strengths of students and families, providing support, and addressing the needs of the whole child.

With anxiety, depression, and a desire for connection on the rise for youth, Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral To services (SBIRT) is a beneficial care model used to more effectively identify and address the needs of middle school students through the use of screening tool called Check Yourself.

The Check Yourself wellness screener is an interactive survey that removes the stigma associated with mental health and substance use and normalizes the dialogue of these otherwise taboo topics, allowing students to share anything they may be internalizing.

Parents and guardians must complete a permission form before their student can participate in SBIRT. Complete the online form below or complete a form at your student's school.
