The quantification of subjective mood is an important part of the assessment of mood. We describe the Daily Mood Diary (DMD) which is in restricted clinical use and undergoing further consideration. It is based on the standard ubiquitous health question, "How do you feel today". It is unique in that it provides a progressive daily total - this introduces its weakness, that it must be applied every day - any lapse in daily collection introduces error. A copy of the score sheet is provided and evaluation is encouraged.
