Résumé / Abstract

Few instruments exist for the assessment of adolescent mental health. In order to examine the appropriateness of the Mental Health Inventory (MHI) for use with adolescents, secondary analyses were conducted of the large subsample (n = 953) of adolescents who participated in the community-based Rand Health Insurance Study. The reliability and readability of the MHI were confirmed. Subscales reflecting Psychological Well-Being and Psychological Distress were derived. The MHI, with its adolescent norms, is recommended for the assessment of adolescent mental health, particularly in studies in which comparison to a nonpsychiatric, normative adolescent population is indicated.
