The ISP provides an anonymous, web-based method of outreach that starts with a brief, confidential online Stress & Depression Questionnaire that students are invited to complete. The 35 item questionnaire takes less than 10 minutes to complete and incorporates the PHQ-9 as well as questions about suicidal ideation and attempts, problems related to depression such as anger and anxiety, alcohol and drug abuse, and eating disorder symptoms. Students receive a personal written response from a campus counselor, offering options for follow-up evaluation and treatment.
