BRUMS

This is the Brunel Mood Scale – known as BRUMS. Developed by Peter Terry & Andy Lane (1999/2010).

The 24-item BRUMS measures six identifiable mood states (Tension, Depression, Anger, Vigor, Fatigue, and Confusion) through a self-report inventory.

To examine how you are feeling right now – you will rate a list of adjectives, on a 5-point scale. The 5 points on the scale are:  “not at all”, “a little”, “moderately”, “quite a bit”, “extremely”.

The six affective mood states subscales are not diagnostic indicators, but refer to sub-clinical psychological states (mood states).

Once you have rated each of the 24 words you will see a brief report summarising your answers
