The severity of depressive symptoms across two discrete mental disorders should be evaluated with the same psychometrically validated tools. In patients with schizophrenia the Calgary Depression Rating Scale (CDSS) is recommended for evaluating depressive symptoms. The aim of this study was to validate the CDSS in patients with major depressive disorder. The CDSS exhibit satisfactory psychometric properties for evaluating depressive symptoms in major depressive disorder. Clinicians and researchers now have a validated scale at their disposal to evaluate depressive symptoms in various mental disorders using a transdiagnostic approach.
