Abstract

Abstract Objective It is debated whether the Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) can generate false positives by screening other disorders as bipolar, or identify sub-threshold bipolarity. The aim is to verify if Quality of Life (QoL) impairment in MQD positives in the community is due to MDQ positivity itself, or to psychiatric diagnosis associated with MDQ positivity (supporting the former hypothesis). Method Community survey. Sample randomized after stratification of the adult population in the records of seven Italian regions. Tools: MDQ; Short Form Health Survey (SF-12); semi-structured clinical interview carried out by clinicians. Results Positives at MDQ show worsening QoL with an attributable burden of 2.8±1.8 lower than in MDD (5.6±3.6, p
