A shortened version of the RADS-2, the RADS-2:SF serves as a very brief screening measure of depression in adolescents. Symptom content is consistent with a wide range of sources, including the DSM-IV and ICD-10.

  • Assesses the frequency of symptoms that are positive psychopathological signs of a depressive disorder.
  • One critical item helps to alert you that your client may require immediate clinical attention.
  • A total score and clinical cutoff quickly determine those in need of further treatment.
