Wellbeing In Schools

Obviate was developed by clinical professionals committed to improving children’s mental health. The values and mission commit us to the lowest possible prices for the school district.

Our model provides an effective Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Tier 1 intervention and a way to proactively flag individual kids who need Tier 2 or 3 services. It also identifies kids with emotional or mental health needs before they need more intensive special education or mental health services. It offers population health management with the capacity to identify patterns that inform universal supports and services.

  • Reducing mental health stigma
  • Minimize false positives/negatives

How it works in schools

All students complete a brief, web-based self-report on a periodic basis. This universal screening reduces stigma and increases mental health literacy. At the same time, teacher, counselors, and/or parents complete a brief survey of their observations and any concerns. Those data sets are triangulated with
school performance data, such as attendance and incidents, to produce a risk profile of each student. The
data is aggregated to identify trends and patterns across grades and schools.

WORKING WITH ADULTS

In the Workplace

Obviate is an investment in employees that provides a return for them and the organization. Our framework integrates current research on behavioral health and distress manifestations, the simplicity of a software app, and the wisdom of professional colleagues, HR and manager feedback.

The World Health Organization has estimated that for every $1 invested into the treatment and support of mental health conditions, there is a return of $4 in improved health and productivity.

The tools are readily customized to your environment, with minimal additional labor, systems, or data tracking.

A dashboard provides managers with alerts for follow-up or engagement, along with unit and organizational trends and progress, and tips and guidance on potential supports.

Frequently asked questions

Does the Well-being Check-in provide diagnostic information or recommendations?

No, the tools are designed to provide an initial screening for the need for mental health and will only provide considerations for categories, such as anxiety or mood disorders. The tools are not designed to provide specific diagnostic information, as that requires a more comprehensive, face to face assessment.

Does the Well-being Check-in or Concerns & Red Flags assess suicide risk?

The screening process does not assess directly suicide risk. The model is designed to triangulate sources of data to identify mental health needs. While certain mental health conditions such as depression are closely associated with suicide risk and treatment can greatly reduce the risk of suicide, other factors can influence suicide risk. When there is a concern with the risk of suicide, Obviate recommends a more focused assessment by a qualified clinical professional.

What is the school’s liability if the Well-being Check-in scores are high & the school does not act upon the information?

The Well-being Check-in is a tool and communication device, designed and validated to align distress symptoms with the potential need for emotional or mental health support. The Well-being Check-in, like all screening tools, has the potential for a false positive or a false negative. 

The Concerns and Red Flags and Student Profile increase the reliability of the data but the school and caregivers must ultimately use their own judgment to determine how to meet their legal obligations, mitigate risk, and enhance the student’s well-being.


What about students with Individualized Education Plans or 504 plans?

The screening process can be used for all students, including students with a disability or special education needs. School districts will need to ensure compliance with IDEA and other regulations, such as consent, documentation, or tracking requirements.

What is the process to connect Student Profile data into the application?

Obviate has identified the common data sets and developed provides an API to connect securely with the school.

Can teachers and staff also complete the Well-being Check-in?

Obviate recommends school staff and even family members complete the Well-being Check-in, using the adult version.

Is Parental consent required?

Parental consent is probably not required with universal administration but this depends upon several factors.  School districts should consult with their legal resources for final decision.  The following are considerations for obtaining consent:

  • Consent may be necessary for youth grade six or below. 
  • Consent may be necessary when the screening is targeted to a specific student.
  • Consent may be required for students with Individualized Education Plans.

Does the screening data become part of the child’s educational record?

No, it does not.

Is the software data maintained at the school district office?

No, the data is securely maintained in the cloud by Obviate.

Can I customize the application?

School districts cannot change the software but may request changes or enhancements.  Since the software is multi-tenanted, all Obviate customers will receive updates and enhancements recommended and developed by other customers.

Who owns the student data?

The school owns all student data. Obviate only collects non-identifying information for quality assurance purposes.
