Overview

Helping people with mental illness relies on the ability to understand and measure the severity of the experiences that they find distressing. SCAN is a form of interview, which provides a detailed and accurate picture of 'mental state'. When analysed by computer it provides a diagnosis that is comparable wherever the system is used. PSE-10/SCAN synthesises ICD-10 and DSM-IV criteria and builds on experience from extensive tests of its predecessor PSE-9. This reference manual is a companion to the SCAN interview schedule and software. It describes the rationale and development of the system and provides a valuable introduction to its uses.
