MDI

Clinical Scales

The MDI is a brief, self-report mood questionnaire that allows clinicians to assess the presence of a depressive disorder according to DSM-IV. It is also used to assess the severity of depressive symptoms.

The MDI was developed by Professor Per Bech and colleagues, in conjunction with the Psychiatric Research Unit of the WHO Collaborative Center for Mental Health.

You can also download a printable version, scoring instructions , or continue with the Major Depression Inventory Scale.
