General-practice Users Perceived-need Inventory

Screening and assessment instrumentation for Primary Care

The research group now working in Southern Synergy conducted the development, supported by a grant from beyondblue the National Depression initiative of a novel instrument for screening and assessment of mental health problems in primary care (the General-practice Users Perceived-need Inventory or GUPI). This built on the development of the Perceived Need for Care Questionnaire used in the Australian National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing and adapted the structure from that survey instrument towards the primary care setting.
