About General Health Questionnaire-12 Urdu

The GHQ was developed by Goldberg in 1978 and measures the mental health status especially distress in the form of emotional disorders. GHQ 12 has 12 items and it was scored in binary fashion with two least symptomatic answers scored as 0 and two most symptomatic answers scored as 1 (0-0-1-1). The scores can range from 0- 12 with higher scores indicating higher levels of mental distress. The caseness threshold is 3 for GHQ 12. The items include questions such as: “Have you recently been able to concentrate on whatever you are doing?”,
“Have you lost much sleep over worry?”, “Have you recently felt that you are playing a useful part in things?”, “Have you recently felt capable of making decisions about things?”
