Kutcher Adolescent Depression Scale
The Kutcher Adolescent Depression Scale (KADS) is a self-report scale specifically designed to diagnosis and assess the severity of adolescent depression, and versions include a 16-item, a 11-item and an abbreviated 6-item scale.

There are no validated diagnostic categories associated with particular ranges of scores. All scores should be assessed relative to an individual patient's baseline score (higher scores indicating worsening depression, lower scores suggesting possible improvement).
