MSE-Mental State Exam

Below you will find a document, the MSE Desk Aid. This is the tool which, until at least April 2017 was used to assess, an individuals mental health based on factors such as appearance, behaviour, speech, mood, cognition general insight, thoughts, perceptions, addictions,involuntary movements & cognitive tests.

Whilst I am no expert, I believe that only last week on my Twitter feed, a Dr dismissed the MSE as a less than appropriate tool for assessing mental health.
