This study aims to a.) test the reliability and validity of the Thai version of Calgary depression scale of schizophrenia (CDSS) and b.) identify the prevalence and factors associated with depression in patients with schizophrenia including quality of life, type of antipsychotic drugs, and severity of schizophrenia in 60 patients with schizophrenia at the Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Thailand.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The reliability of the Thai version of the Calgary Depression Scale for Schizophrenia (CDSS) in schizophrenia patients. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The inter-rater reliability, the test-retest reliability will be analyzed.

  • The validity of the Thai version of the Calgary Depression Scale for Schizophrenia (CDSS) in schizophrenia patients. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS), Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression-17 (HAM-D 17), Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) will be administered by the first rater, whereas the CDSS will be assessed by a second independent rater.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The prevalence of depression in patients with schizophrenia [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The point prevalence of depression in patients with schizophrenia will be presented in percentage.

  • The association between depression in schizophrenia and quality of life. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The association between depression in schizophrenia and quality of life (WHOQOL-BREF-THAI).

  • The association between depression in schizophrenia and type of antipsychotic drugs. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The association between depression in schizophrenia and type of antipsychotic drugs (typical vs atypical).

  • The association between depression in schizophrenia and severity of schizophrenia. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The association between depression in schizophrenia and severity of schizophrenia (PANSS score).
