The CCAPS-Screen is a mental health screening instrument for the general student body 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 is managed via the CCAPS-Web, is not associated with any electronic medical record, and does not collect or retain any identifiable information (i.e. PHI).

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

Types of Administration

Anonymous: Create a web link for students to anonymously self-screen on their own personal device as a mental health check-in (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).  One anonymous link can be created for each CCMH member.

In-Person: Launch a secure portal on university device(s) to administer the CCAPS-Screen to an identified student or group of students (e.g., varsity athletes for pre-participation screenings, students during a counseling center sponsored mental health screening day).  Unlimited In-Person portals can be created.

Remote: Pre-generate unique URL's and CCAPS-Screen ID's that can be distributed to an identified student or group of students to complete the CCAPS-Screen on their own private device.  Administrators can export a csv. file with the unique URL's and CCAPS-Screen ID's to locally match with student information.  Administrators can review results in the CCAPS-Web or export updated csv. files with updates regarding the status of the students results.  Unlimited Remote portals can be created.

Key Features:

  • A department will include local mental health resources that will be included on each CCAPS-Screen profile report for students to review.
  • For In-Person or Remote screenings, administrators will be able to easily identify which CCAPS-Screen reports endorsed some level of Suicidal Ideation using a sorting function.
  • Administrators can quickly run aggregate reports on all groups of students who were screened.  Reports include how many students completed the CCAPS-Screen, the percentage with elevated distress on each subscale, and the proportion of students reporting thoughts of ending their life.
  • Administrators can export raw data to run their own analyses.
