He and his colleagues developed the Mood Disorder Questionnaire, the most widely used screening instrument for bipolar disorder.

Dr. Hirschfeld chaired the original and revised versions of the American Psychiatric Association’s working group to develop practice guidelines for treatment of patients with bipolar disorder.
