Hassanyeh et al used a simple score for psychiatrists to clinically rate the severity of a patient's clinical depression.
(Section A-1) appears depressed
(Section A-2) appears agitated or retarded
(Section A-3) mixing with others
(Section B) patient's expressed feelings
Each item is scored at one of 4 levels from 0 (normal) to 3 (severe).
= SUM(points for all 4 items)
• minimum score: 0
• maximum score: 12
• The higher the score, the greater the depression.
Level of Depression
1 to 4
5 to 8
9 to 12
