  • The College Health Related Information Survey (CHRIS-73): A screen for college student athletes CHILD PSYCHIATRY & HUMAN DEVELOPMENT Steiner, H., Pyle, R. P., Brassington, G. S., Matheson, G., King, M. 2003; 34 (2): 97-109


    To assess the reliability and discriminate validity of a new screening instrument for college student athletes.518 Stanford University students completed the proposed instrument (College Health Related Information Survey-CHRIS-73), which was based on the Juvenile Wellness and Health Survey (JWHS-76) but re-designed to assess mental health domains relevant to college athletes.Factor analysis yielded four factors: mental health problems, eating problems, risk behaviors, and performance pressure. Factors were internally consistent, reasonably independent, and clearly discriminated between athletes and non-athletes, and males and females.This study supports the CHRIS-73 as a useful screen for assessing mental health problems among college student athletes.
