    Article - En anglais

    Objectives 

    The study sought to determine : (i) the prevalence rates of psychological distress and suicidal ideation among 15-24-year-old patients presenting to general practice ; and (ii) the relationship between patients'presenting complaints and their levels of psychological distress and suicidal ideation.

    Method 

    This was a pilot study designed to sample patients aged 15-24 years presenting consecutively to general practitioners during a 4-week period.

    The study was set among five general practices in the western suburbs of Perth, Western Australia.

    Participants included five general practitioners and 69 patients aged 15-24 years.

    Main outcome measures were the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12), the Centre for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) and the Depressive Symptom Inventory-Suicidality Subscale (DSI-SS).

    Results 

    One-third of patients scored above the cut-off of the GHQ-12,31.9% above the cut-off of the CES-D and 20.3% above the cut-off of the DSI-SS.

    The majority of patients (87.5%) presented with medical complaints.

    Of these, 26.8%, 23.2% and 21.4% scored above the cut-offs of the GHQ-12, CES-D and DSI-SS, respectively.

    Patients presenting with psychological complaints (12.5%) were significantly more likely to score above the cut-off of the CES-D.

    Conclusions 

    In this pilot study, patients aged 15-24 presenting to five general practices had relatively high levels of psychological distress and suicidal ideation. (...)
