Bipolar Disorders (in Adults)
This questionnaire is valid only if you are 18 or older and have had a depression severe enough to have caused distress and/or interfered with your functioning in one or more important areas of life such as home, work, school, or interpersonal relationships. Scores are added up over the 12 questions. Individuals with total scores of 15 or less are most likely suffering from Major (unipolar) Depression. Those scoring between 16 and 24 may have either major depression or a disorder in the bipolar spectrum. Those scoring 25 or more have a high probability of having a bipolar spectrum disorder.
This questionnaire was adapted from the printed version of the Goldberg Bipolar Screening Questionnaire, developed by Dr. Ivan Goldberg.
