Mood Disorder Screening
The Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) is recommended in the screening of bipolar symptoms.
The MDQ aims to identify those who suffer from bipolar spectrum disorders (bipolar I, bipolar II, cyclothymia).
It consists of Part I with 13 questions referring to bipolar symptoms and Part II with 2 questions referring to family history of mental disease, past personal diagnoses, and the perceived disease severity.
A positive screening outcome from the mood disorder questionnaire needs to satisfy all three of the following criteria:
- 7 positive answers out of the 13 questions in part I;
- Positive response to the first question of part II (question 14);
- Moderate or severe response to the second question of part II (question 15).
If you feel you are experiencing symptoms of bipolar disorder, it is recommended that you seek a thorough assessment and evaluation by a psychiatrist or your healthcare provider as soon as possible.
