Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9)
The PHQ-9 is a multipurpose instrument for objectively determining severity of initial depressive symptoms, while also allowing for the monitoring of symptom changes and effects of treatment over time. it is not, however, a diagnostic tool. Results from the PHQ-9 must be used in conjunction with clinical judgement and other data as required to reach the appropriate conclusion.

General Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7)

Results from the GAD-7 must be used in conjunction with clinical judgement and other data as required to reach the appropriate conclusion.

Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS)
The Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS) is a multipurpose instrument for objectively determining the severity of ADHD symptoms in adults, while also allowing for the monitoring of symptom changes and effects of treatment over time. However, it is not a diagnostic tool and cannot replace a clinical assessment. Results from the ASRS must be used in conjunction with clinical judgement and other data as required to reach the appropriate conclusion.

Perceived Stress Scale (PSS)
The PSS (Perceived Stress Scale) is a multipurpose instrument for objectively determining severity of perceived stress symptoms, while also allowing for the monitoring of symptom changes and effects of treatment over time. It is not, however, a diagnostic tool. Results from the PSS must be used in conjunction with clinical judgement and other data as required to reach the appropriate conclusion.

Rivermead Post-Concussion Symptoms Questionnaire (RPQ)
The Rivermead Post-Concussion Symptoms Questionnaire (RPQ) is an instrument for objectively determining evidence of post-concussion syndrome, while also allowing for the monitoring of symptom changes and effects of treatment over time. However, it is not a diagnostic tool and cannot replace a clinical assessment. Results from the RPQ must be used in conjunction with clinical judgement and other data as required to reach the appropriate conclusion.

An overall result between 16 and 35 inclusive may be indicative of post-concussion syndrome. A result greater than 35 may be indicative of post-concussion syndrome and predictive of moderate to severe limitations in abilities. Clinical judgement should be used to determine appropriate next steps.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Checklist (PCL-5 is a multipurpose instrument for objectively determining severity of PTSD symptoms while also allowing for the monitoring of symptom changes and effects of treatment over time. It is not, however, a diagnostic tool. Results from the PCL-5 must be used in conjunction with clinical judgement and other data as required to reach the appropriate conclusion. Initial research suggests that a PCL-5 cutoff score between 31-33 is indicative of probable PTSD across samples. However, additional research is needed. Further, because the population and the purpose of the screening may warrant different cutoff scores, users are encouraged to consider both of these factors when choosing a cutoff score.

Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ):
The AQ is designed to measure the expression of Autism-Spectrum traits in an individual. This questionnaire is 50 questions long and takes 5-10 minutes to administer. It is suitable for individuals above the age of 16+

Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)
The AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) is a simple and effective method of screening for unhealthy alcohol use, defined as risky or hazardous consumption or any alcohol use disorder.

Importantly, the AUDIT provides a framework for intervention to help those with unhealthy alcohol use reduce or cease alcohol consumption and thereby avoid the harmful consequences of alcohol.
The AUDIT can also help identify alcohol dependence and specific consequences of harmful drinking. It is particularly designed for health care practitioners and a range of health settings, but with suitable instructions it can be self-administered or used by non-health professionals. This assessment is suitable for ages 14 +.
