 Information on manic depression

Your Goldberg Mood Scales appear to be potentially useful. I do, however,
have a number of questions:

1)      What constitute significantly high or low scores on these scales?
Are there any norms or normative data?

2)      Is there any information available about the reliability or
validity of these scales?

3)      Is there any data comparing these to other instruments (BDI,
Hamilton, etc.)?

Thank-you.

I don't see anywhere in this a definition of what a high score
is.  How many points constitutes a high, medium, and low score?

What is the definition of clinical depression?

Would a person with mononucleosis meet the definition of clinical
depression?

Can your mood scales distinguish between a person with mono and
one with clinical depression?  Thank you in advance for all
replies.
