In 2012, a TSWF Behavioral Health form (TSWF-BH) was created to support the needs of providers in the National Capital Area (JTFCM). In spite of only an initial local training and deployment, many providers across the MHS have been using this form, suggesting that a greater need for standardized documentation exists across the MHS. Since its initial deployment, the TSWF team has been gathering tri-service input and “lessons learned” from users in order to improve the form. An initial alpha test of this improved form provided crucial input for its improvement and also yielded several positive results. Users reported that the form helped them construct more thorough treatment plans (77%), locate critical information in completed notes (69%), and perform more thorough suicide assessments (85%).
