dc.description.abstractThe prevalence of hidden psychiatric morbidity was assessed using the General Health Questionnaire [‎GHQ]‎ and Hospital Anxiety Depression Scale [‎HAD]‎. A total of 149 Bahraini patients aged > or = 16 years were selected randomly from those attending primary health care centres for problems other than psychiatric illness. The prevalence of psychiatric morbidity using GHQ was 45.1% [‎cut-off > or = 5]‎ and 27.1% [‎cut-off > or = 9]‎. Using the HAD scale, the prevalence was 44.4% [‎cut-off > or = 8]‎ and 23.6% [‎cut-off > or = 11]‎. Psychiatric morbidity was more common in women aged 50-55 years, in divorcees or widows and in lesser educated patients. Either instrument could be used to diagnose psychiatric illnessEN
