Summary


The fourth aim of Te Rau Hinengaro: The New Zealand Mental Health Survey was to provide baseline data and calibrate brief instruments measuring mental disorders and psychological distress to inform the use of these instruments in future national health surveys.

The two instruments included in the survey were the Kessler 10-item scale (K10), a measure of psychological distress and the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT).

Results related to this aim were not presented as part of the main report. For the AUDIT tool, results have now been presented as Chapter 6 of the report “Substance Use Disorders: Te Rau Hinengaro: The New Zealand Mental Health Survey” published by the Alcohol Advisory Council of New Zealand (ALAC).
