About Author

For most teenagers, a psychosocial history is as important as the physical examination.

 

Acronym "HEEADSSS" focuses on the following :

H-Home Environment

E-Education & Employment

E-Eating

A-Peer Related Activities

D-Drugs

S- Sexuality

S-Suicide & Depression

S-Safety from injury & violence

 

Without an adequate psychosocial history, one is unlikely to spot problems early enough to reduce adolescent morbidity & mortality. By using this acronym, you can naturally proceed from very important but less threatening questions to those considered highly personal.
