CCMH is an international Practice-Research-Network of over 650 college and university counseling centers that brings together clinical work, research, and technology. CCMH collects data through routine clinical practice from college and university counseling centers, creating the largest PRN of its kind. Since developed in 2004 by Ben Locke, CCMH has collected data from nearly 1.5 million unique clients. 

The mission of CCMH is to create a standardized, continuously flowing database of college mental health data from participating college and university counseling/mental health centers that can serve as a resource for information and research on college student mental health.

CCMH is located at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), at Penn State University.
