ICD-10 Symptom Checklist for Mental Disorders (Version 1.1)

The ICD-10 Symptom Checklist for Mental Disorders (version 1.1) is a semi-structured instrument intended for clinicians’ assessment of psychiatric symptoms and syndromes in the F0-F6 categories of the ICD-10 system. It allows the quick determination of a preliminary diagnosis from an initial brief interview. The instrument consists of a face sheet and screener and, for the purposes of our research, the checklist module relating to psychoactive substance use syndromes. The module comprises a symptom list and lists of states that, according to ICD-10 criteria, should be excluded or could be associated with the syndromes of substance abuse or dependence.
