MAYSI-2 Questionnaire Items

Youths answer 52 items regarding whether various thoughts, behaviors or feelings have been true for them in the past few months. Examples: “Have you had a lot of trouble falling asleep or staying asleep?” “Have you felt angry a lot?” The youth answers by circling yes/no (paper) or with a mouse on a computer screen (Web MAYSI-2). For youths with reading problems, MAYSI-2 items may be read to them while they circle yes/no; with Web MAYSI-2, an audio feature automatically reads each item to the youth aloud.
