The score on each subscale is the sum of the values circled for each item on the subscale (i.e., where 1 = "strongly disagree" and 6 = "strongly agree").  No items need to be reversed before summing.  All of the subscales are independent of one another.  There is no such thing as a "total" MHLC score.
