Quick Mental Health Screening

Thanks for your interest in taking our free online mental health screening! Before taking this screening you need to understand that the screening is offered solely for your information and is not monitored by CAPS. Any items endorsed by you or any scale elevations will not be viewed by CAPS faculty or staff. Consequently, if your screening shows that you have had thoughts of suicide in the last two weeks you should contact the crisis resources listed at the bottom of the page.

After you've received your results, the following information can help you better understand them:

  • Elevated: further evaluation is recommended. Scores for any of the scales that fall in the elevated range typically indicate that you may be experiencing high distress in that area. You would benefit from calling to schedule a Quick Care consultation at CAPS (801-422-3035).
  • Moderate: Scores in the moderate range indicate some potential areas of concern. If these concerns are problematic you may consider further evaluation, or you may consider accessing our online self-help resources, found here.
  • Low: no action is needed at this time. This indicates that this is an area in which you may be functioning normally.

If you reported thoughts of ending your life in the last two weeks: Further evaluation by a mental health professional is recommended unless the item was endorsed accidentally, OR you misunderstood the time-frame of the question (last two weeks). Contact CAPS at (801) 422-3035 from 8am to 5pm for immediate help. If it’s after hours, you can access a CAPS crisis counselor by calling BYU Police at their non-emergency number (801- 422-2222).
