To Our Healthcare Colleagues,


We often find the need to use rating tools to assist with diagnosing mental health concerns, tracking treatment progress, and to establish severity to present to healthcare payers for treatment coverage.


These rating tools are a foundational asset for us at BayTMS and Bay Psychiatric Associates. Our hope is that providing one central repository for these rating tools can assist healthcare professionals to better help those in our community.


Many rating scales are provided by the authors as Public Domain (FREE), while others require a licensing fee. You will see below that the tools and information on it use are have downlaod links and those that require a licensing fee are noted below the table with a link to the contact. 


Thank you for visiting BayTMS and we invite you to consider us when patients are struggling with treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, OCD or other mental health concerns.  We are finding TMS therapy as a better alternative than the next medication trial.
