Mental Health Screening in Primary Care: A Comparison of 3 Brief Measures of Psychological Distress

By Annmarie Cano, Robert P. Sprafkin, Douglas J. Scaturo, Larry J. Lantinga, Barbara H. Fiese and Frank Brand

Abstract

Background: The current study compared 3 brief mental health screening measures in a sample of older patients in a primary care outpatient setting. Previous mental health screening research has been conducted primarily with younger patients, often with only 1 screening measure, thereby limiting the generalizability of findings. In addition, measures have not yet been compared in terms of their ability to discriminate between cases and noncases of psychiatric disorder
