Depression - Montgomery Asperg Depression Rating Scale (10 questions from the HAM-D that respond most consistently to therapy - great way to follow treatment response over time)  

Depression - PHQ-9 - well validated depression screen for primary care and hospital settings

Generalized Anxiety  - GAD - 7.  From the same PHQ series as the PHQ 9.  

PTSD - PTSD Checklist.  Contains civilian and military versions. 

Mania - Young Mania Rating scale - Helpful for following response to treatment for mania in the context of bipolar illness.  In my clinical experience may be falsely positive in the setting of borderline personality disorder.

Decisional Capacity - ACE  - Aid to Capacity Exam.  Helpful for isolated intervention decision.   

Cognitive Impairment - MOCA - more sensitive and specific to mild cognitive impairment than the MMSE and has named domains of cognitive function that can help you to parse different types of cognitive impairment.  Validated in neurology/psychiatric/psychology clinics.

Cognitive Impairment - MMSE - Score <24 suggestive of dementia (Sensitivity 87%, Specificity 82%)  Less specific for mild cognitive impairment, higher cutoff scores (26 or 27) must be used to improve sensitivity.  Validated in PCP setting.   10-15min.  10 foreign language translations.  As of March 2001, official version copyrighted.  

Cognitive Impairment - Mini COG - Clock Drawing test with delayed recall of 3 words (0-demented, 1-2 -depends on clock drawing, 3 - non-demented).  Validated in PCP Setting.    1-5min.  Comparable sensitivity/specificity vs. MMSE for dementia.  Limited cognitive domains.

Cognitive Impairment - SLUMS - Tracks well with MMSE but demonstrates smaller mean, lower rank scores.  Predicts scores on Trail making, Rey Auditory Verbal Learning, Wisconsin Card sorting better than MMSE.  Validated in Group of Veterans vs. MMSE - improved recognition of mild cognitive impairment vs. MMSE.  7-10min.
