National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices PDF Print E-mail

In the fall of 2007, the Columbia University TeenScreen Program was added to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). SAMHSA is program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 

NREPP is a searchable online registry of mental health and substance abuse interventions that have been reviewed and rated by independent reviewers. The purpose of the federal registry is to assist the public in identifying approaches to preventing and treating mental and/ or substance use disorders that have been scientifically tested and that can be readily disseminated to the field. Each intervention/ program listed in the registry includes descriptive information about the intervention/ program and its targeted outcomes, as well as Quality of Research and Readiness for Dissemination ratings.

The Columbia University TeenScreen Program is among the first suicide prevention programs to be included in the NREPP registry. Of the seven youth suicide prevention interventions currently included in NREPP, TeenScreen has the highest overall Readiness for Dissemination rating.
