The Mental Status Examination (MSE) is an essential component of all clinical interviews, and remains the cornerstone of descriptive psychopathology. It is a structured set of questions and observations designed to assess:

* Perception
* Thinking
* Feeling
* Behavior
* Cognitive Functioning & Sensorium

Acrostics.: A Guide to a Successful Mental Status Exam provides a comprehensive and enjoyable overview of the mental status exam. Features include:

* DSM-IV diagnostic criteria that pertain to findings on the MSE
* Coverage of each aspect of the MSE in an individual chapter with definitions, numerous examples, and explanations outlining the relevance of specific findings
* Sample questions to ask in each section of the MSE
* An "edutainment" approach with many illustrations, mnemonics, illustrations and summary diagrams

Acrostics for Psychiatric Diagnostics is a condensation of Mnemonics & More for Psychiatry. It just contains the memory aids only, and not the supplemental information from the larger book.
