What is the Check In Survey?

We are offering registered UCLA students the opportunity to complete our Check In Survey at any time as a way to assess and monitor current levels of depression, anxiety, or other mood disorder symptoms. After students create an account through our secure, online system and consent to participate in the research study, students can then complete the Check In Survey, which can be retaken as often as every two weeks. Students can return to their online account to view individualized feedback for each completed survey, sign-up for additional research studies, or view information about campus behavioral health resources.

Who Can Participate?

If you are a registered UCLA student, you can complete the survey at any time upon signing consent and registering for an account. You can also come back and complete the survey again as long as you are registered as a student and you have not completed the Check In Survey within the past two weeks.

In order to take the Check In Survey, you must be:
  • Over 18 years of age
  • A current UCLA student
  • Fluent in English
  • Have access to the internet
How Do I Participate?

You will be asked to provide your name, a valid phone number, and a valid email address. New user registration, consent, and the Check In Survey take approximately 20 minutes.

Please note that participation in the Check In Survey will be used for research purposes only and will be strictly confidential. By participating in the Check In Survey, members of our research team may contact you about additional research studies for which you may be eligible. If any of your responses are potentially concerning (e.g., you are suicidal and have a plan to harm yourself), your information will be forwarded to our clinical team for confidential review. A clinician will contact you to determine if you have safety concerns that require immediate help. The information collected by the clinician will be transmitted to the research team for clinical purposes only, to assure proper care has been provided, and will not be used as part of the research study.

What is the UCLA Depression Grand Challenge?
What is the UCLA Depression Grand Challenge?

The UCLA Grand Challenges initiative connects faculty, students and supporters from all disciplines to work together, adopting a holistic approach to solve critical issues. We bring passionate participants together to dream big and think grand about what we can achieve when we set our sights on common goals.

The Depression Grand Challenge is a groundbreaking, campus-wide initiative aimed at cutting the burden of depression in half by 2050. We are conducting a series of studies which will enable us to 1) identify the genetic, biological, cognitive, social, and environmental factors associated with depression and 2) implement an innovative treatment approach. Some of these studies will contribute to an unprecedented 100,000 person genetics study.
