Psychiatric Scale NPsychlopedia

Psychiatric scales and related tools can be helpful in screening, diagnosing, and monitoring your patients. Learn more about some of the different psychiatric scales here.

Psychiatric rating scales are commonly used in both research and clinical practice to facilitate patient evaluations for mental health. Scales are designed to meet various needs, including screening, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring. Explore our Psychiatric Scales NPsychlopedia for assessment tools you may be able to incorporate into your daily practice.  The decision about which tool to use will vary and should be dictated by the setting you practice in, the age of your patient, and the instrument’s intended use.
