PAS-ADD/CHA-PAS

Two day course in use of the Mini PAS-ADD & ChA-PAS for mental health assessment of people with intellectual disability - dates soon to be confirmed for 2019

The PAS-ADD assessments (Moss, 2012) have been in continuous development over the past 20 years, and are widely used around the world.  The system comprises three mental health interviews and a checklist. The interviews are designed to support and enhance the skill of clinicians, and to provide the highest quality of assessment in mental health research. The checklist is to aid the process of case detection.

 

The system follows DSM 5 and ICD 10, and maps closely to routine clinical practice. For 20 years the assessments have been available in book form, and are now additionally available for use with computers and tablets.

 

The name PAS-ADD (Psychiatric Assessment Schedules for Adults with Developmental Disabilities) reflects the original research in which the first versions were created. Indeed, the PAS-ADD system has become synonymous with mental health assessment in people with intellectual disability. However, the assessments are equally valid for the general population. Since the addition of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Schedule (ChA-PAS), the system now covers the entire age range.
