Beck Youth Inventories - Second Edition

Educational | Abilities | Neuropsychology | Academic Functioning

Whilst mental health awareness and screening are gaining international attention, it is evident that nationally there is a need to identify youth who may be more susceptible to bullying and victimisation, which can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide ideation. According to the World Health Organization, suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds. The Beck Youth Inventories™ - Second Edition (BYI™-II) can be used as a group or individual screener to evaluate adolescents’ thoughts and behaviours relating to depression, anxiety, anger, self-concept, and disruption. This tool can be a useful aid in identifying pre-teens and teenagers with mental health vulnerabilities who may require interventions or can act as an intervention tracking instrument.
