THE MOOD DISORDER QUESTIONNAIRE



Instructions: Please answer each question to the best of your ability.

© 2000 by The University of Texas Medical Branch. Reprinted with permission. This instrument is designed for screening purposes only and is not to be used as a diagnostic tool.




The MDQ was developed by a team of psychiatrists, researchers and consumer advocates to address

a critical need for timely and accurate diagnosis of bipolar disorder, which can be fatal if left untreated.

The questionnaire takes about five minutes to complete, and can provide important insights into

diagnosis and treatment. Clinical trials have indicated that the MDQ has a high rate of accuracy; it is

able to identify seven out of ten people who have bipolar disorder and screen out nine out of ten

people who do not.

1

A recent National DMDA survey revealed that nearly 70% of people with bipolar disorder had received



at least one misdiagnosis and many had waited more than 10 years from the onset of their symptoms

before receiving a correct diagnosis. National DMDA hopes that the MDQ will shorten this delay and

help more people to get the treatment they need, when they need it.

The MDQ screens for Bipolar Spectrum Disorder, (which includes Bipolar I, Bipolar II and 

Bipolar NOS). 

If the patient answers:

1. “Yes” to seven or more of the 13 items in question number 1; 

AND

2. “Yes” to question number 2; 



AND

3. “Moderate” or “Serious” to question number 3; 

you have a positive screen. All three of the criteria above should be met. A positive screen should 

be followed by a comprehensive medical evaluation for Bipolar Spectrum Disorder.
