For adults requiring assessment and monitoring, the SDQ provides a useful and economical framework for mental health professionals. There is the unparalled opportunity to assess individuals smoothly from early childhood to late maturity with the same measure, but carefully adapted for various age ranges. For further information about the SDQ, go to sdqinfo.org.
The reports and visualisations available in SDQplus helps provide insights for those interpreting individual adult SDQs and assessing mental health changes over time. Visualisations also can be employed with groups of adults to provide insights about prioritising services and estimating loads.
