- 21 Item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale [ Time Frame: 12 week ]The scale rates 21 symptoms related to major depression. A total score of 0-7 is considered to be normal, scores of 20 or higher indicate moderately severe depression. Total scores range from a minimum of 0(not ill) to a maximum of 64 (severely ill).
- Clinical Global Impression Improvement Scale [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]A 7 point scale that requires the clinician to assess how much the patient's illness has improved or worsened relative to a baseline state at the beginning of the intervention. and rated as: 1, very much improved; 2, much improved; 3, minimally improved; 4, no change; 5, minimally worse; 6, much worse; or 7, very much worse. Overall the scale goes from a minimum of 1(very much improved) to a maximum of 7(very much worse).
- Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale at 12 Weeks [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]A rating scale used to measure psychiatric symptoms such as depression, anxiety, hallucinations and unusual behaviour. Each symptom is rated 1-7 and in this version a total of 24 symptoms are scored. Thus the total range of scores is from a minimum of 24 to a maximum of 168. Lower scores are considered better, so the minimum total score of 24 indicates someone with no psychiatric symptoms, while any score over 40 is considered at least moderately severe, with only the most severely ill patients scoring over 60.
