INCRESE an instrument to characterise mental health recovery narratives.

Camberwell Assessment of Need (CAN) a family of questionnaires that assess the health and social difficulties experienced by people who have mental health problems.

The Threshold Assessment Grid (TAG) a brief assessment of the severity of an individual's mental health problems.

Structured Assessment of FEasibility (SAFE) a measure designed to assess the feasibility of implementing a complex intervention within mental health services within the NHS.
