College Counselling Assessments
Higher education can mean higher levels of stress
It's no surprise that mental health issues among college students are on the rise. Transitioning to college can be one of the most stressful times of a young adult's life, and once a student makes the transition, the pressure doesn't end there.
To help you identify which of your young adults are struggling — and how to help them — we have a number of mental health assessments that can be used together or separately with this specific population.
These tools can help identify outward and inward signs of adjustment difficulties such as:
- Eating issues
- Relationship difficulty
- Academic struggles
Assessments for College Students
The MACI®-II was developed specifically for teens and adolescents to assess mental health and behaviour concerns often unique to their age group, and assist in making reliable diagnostic and treatment decisions.
This tool measures subjective, somatic, and panic-related symptoms of anxiety and is designed to discriminate well between anxious and non-anxious diagnostic groups.
This test is a widely used, reliable instrument for measuring depression and has 21 items that assess the intensity of depression in both clinical and normal patients.
A powerful predictor of eventual suicide, this scale measures three major aspects of hopelessness, and identifies individuals at risk for suicide.
The BSS measures attitudes and behaviors that clinicians routinely consider when assessing a patient's suicide risk.
MCCI is a multi-dimensional personality assessment that can help you address your struggling students' concerns and get them back to a healthy state of mind. Free trials are available for new users.
The BASC-3 Self-Report of Personality (SRP) provides insight into a college student's (ages 18 to 25) thoughts and feelings.
