The Mood and Anxiety Symptom Questionnaire (MASQ) is an instrument containing a range of symptoms relevant to depression and anxiety. We have three different versions (90, 62, and 26 items).
Item coding can be retrieved from the Scoring Notes document below. The Items are coded differently for each version of the MASQ. Some items are reverse coded.

The MASQ has 5 subscales:
- General distressed symptoms mixed
- Anxious Symptoms
- Anxious Arousal
- Depressive Symptoms
- Anhedonic Depression
