Attitudes Towards Mood Stabilizers Questionnaire

0 Shared Subjects

"A modification of the Lithium Attitudes Questionnaire (Harvey 1991) which evaluates an individual's attitudes towards mood stabilizing medication (Adams and Scott 2000). The AMSQ comprises 19 items grouped into 7 subscales: general opposition to prophylaxis (4 items), denial of illness severity (3 items), negative attitudes toward drugs in general (3 items), and lack of information about mood stabilizers (1 item). Higher scores on each subscale represent more negative attitudes toward mood stabilizers. Reliability for the 19 items ranges from 57.6 % to 96.9%."
