The BJMHS is adapted from the Referral Decision Scale, a 14-item questionnaire designed to identify inmates with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and serious depression.
The developers of the BJMHS shortened the Referral Decision Scale to eight questions and revised several questions to ask about current symptoms.
They found that the BJMHS correctly classified 74 percent of male inmates and 62 percent of female inmates.
