The CAMM is a 25-item measure of mindfulness. It assesses the degree to which children and adolescents observe internal experiences, act with awareness, and accept internal experiences without judging them.

(Note: For children under the age of 11, we recommend that this assessment is completed and that the results are interpreted with the assistance of an adult.)
Instructions: We want to know more about what you think, how you feel, and what you do.

Read each sentence and check the statement that tells how often each sentence is true for you.
