Introduction
The Participation Scale is a scale to measure (social) participation for use in rehabilitation, stigma reduction and social integration programmes. The P-scale was developed by an international team, coordinated by Dr. Wim van Brakel.

The Participation Scale has been translated in many languages, including the following: Amharic, Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia (Skala Partisipasi), Bangla, Bengali, Bugies, Chinese, Dutch, Hausa, Hebrew, Hindi, Igbo, Jordanian Arabic, Kiswahili, Maithili, Nepali, Portuguese, Slovak, Spanish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Urdu, Vietnamese and Yoruba.

The 13-item Participation Scale Short (PSS) is an abbreviated version of the Participation Scale and can be used to measure (social) participation for use in rehabilitation, stigma reduction and social integration programmes.
