> Browse and share our evidence-based resources

We develop and share *free* resources for supporting research and practice related to school and youth mental health services.

Using and sharing. We hope our resources might benefit practice, training, and research. All of the resources on this page are licensed under the Creative Commons: Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license, which means there is *no need to obtain permission* prior to use. So go ahead and use and share them as you see fit, as long as you appropriately acknowledge where you got them and how you adapted them.

Listings of Evidence-Based Practice Resources

We curate two listings of resources for supporting evidence-based mental health practice in schools. These listings might also be useful for other youth mental health providers outside of schools. Our intention is to bring some organization to all of the good, helpful evidence-based resources that are scattered across the interwebs.
Got feedback? Do you have thoughts about how we might make our resources more useful or user-friendly? If so, let us know! Feel free to email Dr. Renshaw directly.

Assessment Tools & Measures

We have developed several assessment tools and measures that we think can be useful for screening or outcome monitoring purposes in schools or other youth mental health settings. Below are links to these resources, including brief user guides.
  • Youth Internalizing & Externalizing Problems Screeners. The YIEPS is a 20-item, self-report rating scale for assessing youths’ broad mental health problems across internalizing and externalizing domains.
  • Student Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire. The SSWQ is a 16-item, self-report rating scale for assessing youths' school-specific wellbeing. It has four subscales—Joy of Learning + School Connectedness + Educational Purpose + Academic Efficacy—that can combine to make a general Student Wellbeing composite scale.
  • Student Wellbeing Teacher Report Scale. The SWTRS is a 12-item, teacher-report rating scale for assessing youths’ school-specific wellbeing. It has three subscales—Academic Wellbeing + Emotional Wellbeing + Social Wellbeing—that can combine to make a Total Student Wellbeing composite scale.
  • Teacher Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire. The TSWQ is an 8-item, self-report rating scale for assessing teachers’ school-specific wellbeing. It has two subscales—Teaching Efficacy + School Connectedness—that can combine to make a general Teacher Wellbeing composite scale.
  • College Student Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire. The CSSWQ is a 16-item, self-report rating scale for assessing college students’ wellbeing. It has four subscales—Academic Satisfaction + Academic Efficacy + School Connectedness + College Gratitude—that can combine to make a general College Student Wellbeing composite scale.
