National Institutes of Health Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (NIH PROMIS, 2013).

National Institutes of Health Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (NIH PROMIS, 2013)

The NIH PROMIS is a database of self-report measures for monitoring patient symptoms in four domains (i.e., global, physical, mental, and social health) in adults. The Mental Health profile item banks (i.e., depression and anxiety) are the most directly related to community mental health. Both item banks are available in short forms (ranging from 4- to 8-items) and long forms (approximately 30 items).  These tools can be used as screening instruments (Broderick, DeWitt, Rothrock, Crane, & Forrest, 2013). No information on use with adolescents was available. All items are available in Spanish, with translations and validations pending in Dutch, Portuguese, Hindi, and Mandarin. Below, we have described the Depression and Anxiety banks. Additional mental health item banks include Anger; Applied Cognition; Alcohol Use, Consequences and Expectancies; and Psychosocial Illness Impact. The psychometric analysis is still pending for these item banks.

The PROMIS Depression item bank assesses depressive effects such as negative mood (e.g., sadness, guilt) and negative social cognition (e.g., loneliness, interpersonal alienation). Sample items include “I felt worthless” and “I felt helpless.” Each item is rated on a scale from one (“never”) to five (“always”). The full depression bank (28 items) demonstrates excellent alternate-form reliability (r = .96) and concurrent validity with the 8-item short form. In addition, the depression item bank demonstrates acceptable to good concurrent validity with the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale (CES-DS; Radloff, 1977) and the Mood and Anxiety Symptom Questionnaire (MASQ; Watson & Clark, 1991).   

The PROMIS Anxiety item bank assesses aspects of anxiety symptomatology such as fear (e.g., feelings of panic) and anxious misery (e.g., worry, dread). Sample items include “I felt like something awful might happen” and “I worried about what could happen to me.” Each item is rated from one (“never”) to five (“always”). The full anxiety bank (29 items) demonstrates excellent alternate-form reliability (r = .96) and concurrent validity with the 7-item short form. The Anxiety item bank demonstrates concurrent validity with the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale (CES-DS; Radloff, 1977) and the Mood and Anxiety Symptom Questionnaire (MASQ; Watson & Clark, 1991).
