Concise Associated Symptoms Tracking–Self Report (CAST-SR; Trivedi et al, submitted). The CAST-SR assesses symptoms related to suicidal thoughts and behaviors. This scale consists of 17 self-report items rated on a fully anchored 5-point Likert scale with responses ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree). Items assess symptoms of anxiety, tension, irritability, impulsivity, psychomotor agitation, physiologic hyperarousal, and hypomania/mania. The scale yields a total score ranging from 17 to 85. The internal consistency coefficient for the CAST-SR is good (Cronbach’s alpha of 0.77).
