Mental health screenings

The CCAPS-Screen is a user-friendly measure that gives you an idea of what sort of stress and discomfort you are experiencing. It measures your stress levels in the areas of depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, academic distress, eating concerns, frustration, family distress and alcohol use.

Start here:

Take the Counseling Center Assessment of Psychological Symptoms (CCAPS-Screen).

Feedback from this screening will help you navigate what support will benefit you most. Of course, the CCAPS-Screen does not replace a formal diagnosis or consultation with a mental health professional.

Counseling Services highly recommends you complete this screening before choosing from the menu of services available to you if you are feeling lost, overwhelmed, or unsure of your stress.

Next step:

With your CCAPS-Screen as a guide, use this document to match your stress with the best support service available to you at Augustana College.

Note to faculty and staff: Please, refer a student to this screening when a student comes to you with mental health concerns. Furthermore, if you and the student are comfortable with looking at the results together, the screening is easily understood and will help you refer them to most beneficial resource on campus, i.e., advising, CORE, residential life, student success services, student counseling services, etc.
