Developed as a user friendly measure for non-mental health clinicians, the CCAPS-Screen is a mental health screening instrument that assesses the most common psychological problems experienced by college students. The CCAPS-Screen is a 36-item instrument with eight subscales as well as a critical item related to the report of Suicidal Ideation (SI) within the last two weeks.   The CCAPS-Screen can be administered in two manners: Supervised or Unsupervised.

Supervised vs. Unsupervised 

Supervised CCAPS-Screen: Oversight of a screening administration(s) for an identified person or group of people (e.g., varsity athletes for pre-participation screenings, students during a counseling center sponsored mental health screening day)

Unsupervised CCAPS-Screen: Providing a web link for students to take the screen anonymously (e.g., link to the screening on a counseling center website so students can self-screen, link for an institutional research department to collect anonymous data about student mental health)

CCAPS-Screen Subscales

  1. Depression
  2. Generalized Anxiety
  3. Social Anxiety
  4. Academic Distress
  5. Eating Concerns
  6. Frustration
  7. Family Distress
  8. Alcohol Use
