About the MINI for Suicidality Disorders Studies

The Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) for Suicidality Disorders Studies (MINI-SD) is a short structured diagnostic interview that appends a series of modules for suicidality disorder phenotypes at the end of the standard MINI (for more information about these suicidality disorders phenotypes, click here).  This suicidality disorder module asks about the 12 different suicidality disorders phenotypes described by Sheehan & Giddens (in Suicidality: A Roadmap for Assessment and Treatment).  These suicidality disorder phenotypes may have a different age of onset, natural history, clinical course, set of biomarkers, prognosis, and response to treatment.

Has the MINI been validated?

The MINI has been psychometrically validated against the much longer Structured Clinical Interview for DSM diagnoses (SCID-P) in English and French and against the Composite International Diagnostic Interview for ICD-10 (CIDI) in English, French, and Arabic. It has also been psychometrically validated against expert opinion in a large sample in four European countries (France, United Kingdom, Italy and Spain). The MINI has been linguistically validated in over 70 languages. According to researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health’s (NIMH) Division of Clinical and Treatment Research, the MINI is a fully validated and more time-efficient alternative to the SCID-P and CIDI.

The Suicidality Disorder modules in the MINI for Suicidality Disorders Studies have not yet been validated psychometrically since there is no other structured interview with comparable modules against which to validate it.

Versions of the MINI for Suicidality Disorders Studies

The MINI for Suicidality Disorders is the MINI 7.0.2 for DSM-5 with additional modules added to map to diagnostic criteria for 12 separate suicidality disorder phenotypes. Each of these phenotypes has a different clinical presentation and each may have a different response to different treatments. These phenotypes are described in detail in the book Suicidality: A Roadmap for Assessment and Treatment by Sheehan DV and Giddens JM. Harm Research Press. Tampa, Florida, USA. 2015.

The MINI for Psychotic and Suicidality Disorders is a more elaborate version of MINI 7.0.2 for DSM-5. The Psychotic Disorders Module in this MINI variant permits identification of all the key Psychotic Disorder subtypes. It has additional modules added to the standard MINI to map to diagnostic criteria for 12 separate suicidality disorder phenotypes.
