Validation of the Brief Jail Mental Health Screen

5 hours ago Ps.psychiatryonline.org Show details

1. Previous studies with the RDS used its parent measure, the Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS), as the standard for its validation. We thought this standard was a weak test of the screen's validity. A more compelling test would involve the use of a different structured clinical interview that would more naturally reflect the clinical assessment phase of the triage process. For that reason, we used the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV (SCID) as our standard. Participants included jail detainees admitted to one of four county jails—two in Maryland and two in New York—from May 2002 to January 2003. All participants answered questions on two screening instruments on admission to the jails. The two screening instruments were the Brief Jail Mental Health Screen (BJMHS) and the Suicide Prevention Screening Guidelines (SPSG). The screening data were used to identify a subsample of detainees (approximately 90 from each jail) who were systematically sampled for a detailed clinical ass...
