The Clubhouse Research and Evaluation Screening Survey (CRESS) is a brief instrument designed to predict clubhouse readiness for certification assessment and, hence, performance in regard to expected model outcomes. The development of CRESS provides a practical example of the methodological challenges involved in creating a brief and valid screening instrument. Developed over a period of 5 years, CRESS is grounded in a series of workgroups, surveys, and pilot studies conducted by Fountain House and the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD) in New York City. CRESS is shown to have criterion-oriented validity for the measurement of ICCD clubhouse model-related performance, as well as demonstrated ease in administration to a national sample of mental health programs.
