Screening for the at-risk mental state in educational settings: A systematic review. The at-risk mental state (ARMS) allows clinicians to identify individuals who have an increased risk of developing psychosis. At present, most screening for psychosis-risk is carried out within help-seeking populations; however, screening within educational settings may allow clinicians to identify individuals at-risk earlier and to increase the rate of detection. This review aimed to examine screening (...) for the ARMS in educational settings, with the key questions: what screening tools have been used in educational settings, can screening in educational settings detect individuals with ARMS, what threshold scores in screening tools indicate a positive screen in educational settings, are there comorbid mental health conditions associated with the ARMS in educational settings?Searches were carried out in PsycINFO, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scopus and Web of Science and reference lists of included articles searched

Comparison of the screening ability between the 32-item Hypomania Checklist (HCL-32) and the Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) for bipolar disorder: A meta-analysis and systematic review. The frequent misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder (BD) is associated with detrimental consequences and inappropriate treatments. The 32-item Hypomania Checklist (HCL-32) and the Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) are widely used self-report screening instruments for BD. This is a systematic review and meta-analysis (...) cutoffs, summary sensitivities were 82% (95% CI: 72%-89%) and 80% (95% CI: 71%-86%), while specificities were 57% (95% CI: 48%-66%) and 70% (95% CI: 59%-71%) for the HCL-32 and the MDQ respectively. Both the HCL-32 and the MDQ have acceptable psychometric properties to identify BD and appear to be useful screening tools for BD.Copyright © 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
