The interRAI Mental Health (MH) Assessment System is a comprehensive standardized instrument for evaluating the needs, strengths and preferences of adults with mental illness in in-patient psychiatric settings. This instrument allows for assessment of key domains of function, mental and physical health, social support and service use; with particular items identifying those who could benefit from further evaluation of specific problems to help prevent risk of further decline and improve functioning. The interRAI MH © replaced the RAI-MH Version 2.0 as the international standard for inpatient assessment of adults in mental health settings in 2007. The interRAI MH © is being implemented in Iceland and Finland.

The domain areas covered by the interRAI MH © include all domains in the RAI-MH version 2.0.
