    The Knowledge of Mental Illness and Recovery Scale (K-MIR; Rieschleger et al., 2019) measure mental health literacy levels and coping outcomes for youth (ages 10-16) following participation in a manualized, school-based mental health literacy program. The addition and modification of items in the scale resulted in 36 items. The validation sample was comprised of youth (aged 11-16 years) participants in the Youth education and Support (YES) program. The fidelity assessment revealed that fidelity objectives were met 94% of the time within the YES program delivery. Internal consistency and test validity were reported. Completion time is 11-14 minutes. (PsycTests Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
