The BACE measures barriers to accessing mental health care. It asks about 30 different barriers to care, and has a special focus on stigma-related barriers. It has a ‘treatment stigma’ subscale to assess to what extent the stigma associated with mental health care has been a barrier for an individual. It has good psychometric properties and is also being used in several studies around the world. Read this description in another language.
The CODA has been developed to measure the economic costs than can arise due to the stigma and discrimination which people with mental health problems often face. The content of the CODA was based on a systematic review of the topic and on focus groups. The main sections of the CODA cover employment, health care use and avoidance, and leisure activities.

The DISC is an interview-based scale which measures experiences of mental health-related discrimination (‘being treated unfairly’) in key areas of everyday life and social participation, including work, marriage, parenting, housing, leisure, and religious activities. It has 21 questions. The DISC is designed to be completed by people who have experience of mental health problems. It is a reliable and valid measure and has been in over 40 countries around the world. The DISCUS is a shorter version of the DISC scale, with only 11 questions, measuring experiences and anticipated discrimination predominantly in personal and social relationships in global settings.

MAKS has been developed to measure mental health-related knowledge. The tool assesses and tracks stigma-related mental health knowledge among the general public and can be used to evaluate anti-stigma interventions. If used in combination with other assessment tools that measure attitudes and behaviour, MAKS can help researchers plan and develop interventions that effectively reduce stigma.

The MICA has 16 questions and has been widely used around the world. Read this description in another language.
