Revised Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (RHRSD) 


The Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression was developed in a medical setting and, for more than 30 years, used to evaluate response to antidepressant medication. This revision rests on the solid foundation of research and clinical use that supports the original scale. And like the original, it provides a quick measure of symptom type and severity in adults.

The RHRSD retains the Hamilton items, which cover both psychoaffective and somatic symptoms. However, it adds features that make it more clinically useful. These include a 76-item self-report version that can be completed in the waiting room and eight critical items that address DSM-IV’s criterion C for Major Depressive Episode.

Three interpretive options allow you to look at one or more of the following:

Overall Symptom Severity

Groups of Symptoms

DSM-IV Diagnoses, Melancholic Features, Symptoms Responsive to Medication, Psychological and Somatic Symptoms

Specific Symptom Areas  

Disruption of Family and Social Life, Depressed Mood, Feelings of Guilt, Insomnia, Work and Activities, Sexual Symptoms, Agitation, Worry, Somatic Symptoms, Hypochondriasis, Obsessive–Compulsive Symptoms, Paranoid Symptoms, and more.

With its time-saving format, self-report option, and enhanced diagnostic support, the RHRSD is an efficient clinical tool. It can be used to quickly evaluate symptom severity, confirm a diagnosis of depression, explore depressive symptoms, and measure treatment outcome.

Includes 20 AutoScore RHRSD Clinician Forms; 20 AutoScore RHRSD Self-Report Problem Inventories; 1 Manual
