Short Mood and Feelings Questionnaire (SMFQ)

Updated: March 27, 2024
The SMFQ is a child and parent self-report survey used to measure depressive symptoms in children and young adults aged 6-17. Several peer-reviewed studies have found the SMFQ to be a reliable and valid measure of depression in children. It is free for use and translations are available in multiple languages; however, there is not reliability or validity data for all of the translations.
