The Refugee Health Screener–15 (RHS-15) was developed in a community public health setting to be an efficient and effective way to sensitively detect the range of emotional distress common across refugee groups.

This tool provides the English version of the RHS-15 and is for informational purposes only. Bilingual versions of the RHS-15 have been translated by professional translations and with the participation of the community so that each question is asked correctly according to language and culture. It is currently available in Arabic, Burmese, Karen, Russian, and Nepali (Bhutanese) and will soon be available in Somali and Spanish. These versions can be obtained by contacting the developer.
