Absenteeism, poor academic performance, rising substance use and student mental health concerns are common challenges faced by school administrators. Principals, teachers, and school support staff are tasked with understanding and addressing student behavioral health issues which might be impeding their learning, however they often feel ill-equipped to act as agents of change. Tickit provides school professionals with the youth health screening tools to discern risky youth behaviors, identify vulnerable students and provide personalized support to each student.
Population well-being, one student at a time.
Co-created with youth, Tickit houses scientifically validated youth health screening tools that are proven to have higher acceptability and engagement among young people. This results in youth sharing more accurate, honest information for better outcomes.
Tickit takes an interactive, cutting-edge approach to student-reported data collection. Administered to youth on any desktop or mobile device, Tickit enables more efficient workflow for schools and school-based health centers. Specializing in collecting sensitive information from students, Tickit creates a safe and nonjudgmental place for students to share information related to health, exposure to bullying, stress, anxiety, depression, all which can greatly impact student outcomes and graduation rates. Using Tickit’s dashboard, school counsellors monitor student responses in real time: a green flag means no intervention is required, a yellow flag indicates the need for a brief intervention of a non-urgent nature, and a red flag alerts to concerns that must be addressed immediately or within 24 hours.
SBIRT: Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment
Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a public health approach to identify and address substance use risks among youth. In school settings, the SBIRT model is adapted to offer timely screening and early prevention for students. This is done as part of a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) framework which provides targeted support to struggling students in tiers. SB-SBIRT encourages the implementation of universal youth health screening at a school-wide level, in order to provide personalized support to at-risk individuals.
Check Yourself®, powered by Digital Empathy™
Tickit Health’s partnership with Seattle Children’s Research Institute led to the development of a digital youth health screening tool, Check Yourself, which is used to identify at-risk behaviour in middle and high-school students. Using Digital Empathy, Check Yourself sparks more meaningful conversations between teens and school counselors and motivates teens to make healthy choices. A critical part of the nation-wide SBIRT program, Check Yourself is currently used in hundreds of schools and clinics across Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, and Washington State.
SB-SBIRT Playbook for student wellness program in schools
The SBIRT model was adapted for school setting and piloted in 50 schools across King County to improve youth health outcomes. The success of this initiative led to the development of SB-SBIRT Playbook that contains a collection of actions and considerations called “Plays” to assist a school district or school with implementing the SB-SBIRT model.
