Hamilton Rating Scale For Depression (HRSD) or (HAM-D)
The Hamilton Rating Scale For Depression is a 17-item clinical rating scale for measuring the severity of depression, typically for individuals who have already been diagnosed as depressed. It has good validity and reliability and is relatively short to administer. Select the response to the right of each item that you think best matches the state of the patient. The higher the score, the more severe the depression in the patient.
