Calgary Depression Scale for Schizophrenia has been developed by Drs. D.
and J. Addington at the University of Calgary. The Scale was specifically
developed to assess the level of depression in schizophrenia. It has been
extensively evaluated in both relapsed and remitted patients and appears
sensitive to change.
Scale is currently available in 36 languages: Arabic, Bulgarian,
Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian,
Korean, Latvian, Malay,
Serbian, Spanish (Argentina),
(Mexico), Spanish (Spain), Swedish,
Tagalog, Thai, Turkish,
is important to note that the Scale is designed for use by an experienced
rater. It is not intended for self assessment, and any person concerned
about schizophrenia should see a medical professional. The University
of Calgary, Alberta Health Services and Drs. D. and J. Addington
accept no responsibility for the Scale if it is not administered under appropriate
conditions by a professional.
The Scale is copyrighted and the copyright is held by Dr. Donald Addington and

organization. Permission to use the Scale will be given to for profit
organizations upon request to Dr. Donald Addington by
