Correctional Mental Health Screening for Men
The Correctional Mental Health Screening for Men (CMHS-M) measures acute mental health issues present in detainees that should be identified prior to placement. Questions are answered in a yes-no format, and then rated on a Likert-scale from 1 (low risk or need) to 5 (high risk or need), depending on severity, in the comments box at right.
