Why people with probable minor psychiatric morbidity consult a doctor.
This epidemiological investigation examines factors determining medical consultation in people with probable minor psychiatric morbidity.
About 54% of people with probable minor psychiatric morbidity and about 23% of the (numerically much greater) remainder with lower probability of psychiatric morbidity consulted a doctor, usually a primary care physician, in the two weeks prior to a research interview.
Medical consultation rates were higher in females than in males.
The dominant finding was that in people with probable minor psychiatric morbidity physical illness was strongly associated with medical consultation.
