Reliability and Validity of Five Mental Health Scales in Older Persons.
Himmelfarb, Samuel; Murrell, Stanley A.
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n3 p333-39 May 1983
Assessed five scales as mental health measures for older persons (N=318). The internal consistency reliabilities for the anxiety, depression, and well-being scales were moderately high to high, but the reliabilities for the affect balance scale suggest some caution. Cutting points for the well-being and depression scales are suggested. (Author/JAC)
