The Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview (M.I.N.I.) is a short, structured, diagnostic interview, developed jointly by psychiatrists and clinicians in the United States and Europe, for DSM-IV and ICD-10 psychiatric disorders. The diagnostic criteria of the MINI are based on DSM-IV. With an administration time of approximately 15 minutes, it was designed to meet the need for a short but accurate structured psychiatric interview for multicenter clinical trials and epidemiology studies, and to be used as a first step in outcome tracking in clinical settings. The MINI appears to be easily incorporated into routine clinical interviews and has good acceptance by patients (Pinninti et al, 2003). The interview consists of 16 modules, each with about 8-10 questions.
