Abstract
The Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAMD) is widely used in studies to measure change in the severity of depression. There are reports of established reliability and validity of the HAMD in both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric patients. However, there are no published psychometric studies of the HAMD in a methamphetamine using population. Given that the symptoms of depression and intoxication or withdrawal from methamphetamine overlap, it is possible that the HAMD does not measure severity of depression in individuals who use methamphetamine. Thus, we are conducting a psychometric evaluation of the HAMD in methamphetamine users with and without depression. This evaluation is currently underway, and we anticipate having results in 6-8 weeks.
