If the screening tool indicates that a referral for additional screening or mental health services is appropriate, that referral shall occur as soon as possible. If the screening indicates a warning or caution, the juvenile shall be placed on, and remain under, increased supervision until it is determined by a mental health clinician that a heightened level of supervision is no longer needed to ensure the safety of the juvenile.
