Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) Kid Tracking Version 7.0.2


The Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) is a short, structured diagnostic interview developed initially in 1990 by psychiatrists and clinicians in the United States and Europe for DSM-III-R and ICD-10 psychiatric disorders. With an administration time of approximately 15 minutes, the MINI is the structured psychiatric interview of choice for psychiatric evaluation and outcome tracking in clinical psychopharmacology trials and epidemiological studies. The MINI is the most widely used psychiatric structured diagnostic interview instrument in the world, employed by mental health professionals and health organizations in more than 100 countries. The MINI has been translated and linguistically validated in over 70 languages. It has been updated to map to both DSM-IV, MINI 6.0 (version 10/10/10), and DSM-5, MINI 7.0.2, diagnostic criteria.

The MINI Kid Tracking converts the binary responses (Yes / No) of the MINI Kid modules into dimensional response options (none / mild / moderate / very / extreme) for each symptom / criterion.  If for example, a patient’s symptoms meet criteria for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and for no other disorder at baseline visit, the patient’s response to treatment can then be monitored on the single Major Depressive Episode module in the MINI Tracking over the course of treatment.  In general, we recommend tracking at least the primary disorder noted in the MINI over the course of treatment.  Each of the MINI Tracking modules yields a score that can be plotted quantitatively to monitor treatment response over time.  This permits one stop shopping in having one instrument (MINI Kid Tracking) to both assess and quantitatively monitor the response to treatment.
