Description

MPAS-Check

A questionnaire to identify potential mental health problems in people with intellectual disabilities (formerly known as PAS-ADD Checklist)

MPAS-Check is a 25-item questionnaire, written in everyday language, for use primarily by care staff and families who are best placed to notice changes in the behaviour of the people they support. It is designed to record the presence of a range of problems, all of which may be part of a psychiatric condition.

The Checklist aims to help staff and carers to identify potential mental health problems and decide whether a further assessment of an individual’s mental health may be helpful.

MPAS-Check can be used to screen whole groups of individuals, or as part of a regular monitoring of people who are considered to be at risk of mental illness. The scoring system includes threshold scores which, if exceeded, indicate the presence of a potential psychiatric problem. This may then be more fully assessed using MPAS-ID or MPAS-Diag (ID).

The score forms with guidance are available in packs of 20.

The Moss Psychiatric Assessment Schedules

The Moss Psychiatric Assessment Schedules (MPAS) are the successors to the well known PASADD system. The original Psychiatric Assessment Schedule for Adults with Developmental Disabilities was developed to provide improved patient interviewing for adults with intellectual disability, and over the years the name became synonymous with mental health assessment in people with intellectual disability. Since those early days, the author has continued to develop new assessments, and to train several thousand people in their use round the world. The insight and feedback from these users has enabled ongoing refinement of the questions, and improvements in the descriptions of symptoms in various levels of severity. The result of this 30 years of development is a set of assessments of unparalleled quality and ease of use. The series now includes versions for adults and children, both with intellectual disability, and of normal developmental level. Coming soon will be an expert interview designed specifically for forensic use.

Audience

The MPAS-Check is to be completed primarily by carers and families of people with intellectual disabilities who will have the most immediate perception of changes in the behaviour of the people they care for.
