The SF12 Health Survey, Version 1 (SF-12v1), is a generic health-related quality-of-life instrument. It was originally developed in 1994 as a shorter alternative (12 items) to the widely used Short-Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36), for studies in which a 36-item form was too long. The mental health dimension of the SF-36 is composed of the 5 items of the Mental Health Inventory , relative to other screening tools for depression and other mental disorders
