I am part of the Global Mental Health Assessment Tool (GMHAT) steering committee. GMHAT is a validated computerized mental health assessment tool developed by Professor Vimal Sharma, Professor of International Health Development, University of Chester, and Professor John Copeland for clinicians to assess mental disorders. I have been part of the validation studies of GMHAT. This tool was developed to help clinicians and non clinicians in mental health assessment of patients.
There are two versions of the same – one primary care version and a secondary care version. Both versions of the tool have been validated. The tool is available in different languages (Spanish, Arabic, English, and Hindi). For details about GMHAT, please see http://www.gmhat.org/
I am the principal trainer for use of GMHAT for India. I have delivered GMHAT training to the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Good Governance and Policy Analysis, Madhya Pradesh (this is for the use of GMHAT in an epidemiological study).
