Measuring psychiatric disorder among Southeast Asian refugees.

Abstract

Four measures of mental health--Panic, Depression, Somatization and Well-Being--have been developed for use in a population of Southeast Asian refugees. The scales, a product of work with 1348 refugees, demonstrate conceptual significance, good reliability, concurrent validity and stability of structure across samples. They are culturally sensitive, enabling intra-cultural study as well as screening for clinical purposes. The measures also permit comparisons, for research purposes, with non-Asians.
