Neutrosophic Evaluation of Depression Severity
Keywords:neutrosophic numbers, mental diseases, Hamilton scale, depression
Among the mental illnesses, depression is a very common manifestation today. Various methods have been approached in the scientific literature to quantify depression, among which we may find the Hamilton scale. However, depression has a degree of uncertainty in its manifestation conditioned by the severity of the diagnosis. Problems of this nature have been addressed by science from neutrosophic modeling. Based on the scenario described above, the present research proposes a neutrosophic method for evaluating the level of depression. The method bases its operation on the adaptation of the Hamilton scale with neutrosophic numbers to quantify depressive disorder. The method uses the range to indicate the levels of severity of depression recognized by the American Psychiatric Association by means of neutrosophic numbers.
