Computerized Assessment and Referral System (CARS)
Responsibility.org is a proud sponsor of the groundbreaking CARS screening and assessment tool which was released in June 2017 and is now in use across the nation. You can download CARS for free at the CARS Training Center.
NEW: A CARS screener is now available for use in the broader population as a mental health screening instrument. The CARS Mental Health Screener will be useful for physicians, mental health professionals, first responders and veteran service organizations.
The new mental health screening tool was developed to identify people in crisis and connect them with the treatment they need. Responsibility.org launched the new screener on a November 2021 webinar about alcohol use disorders among veterans.
The new mental health screener is available in 3 versions:
- CARS screener (15-20 minutes)
- Self-administered CARS screener (15-40 minutes)
- Full CARS assessment (1-2 hours)
