According to standardized screening instruments, mental distress is a common phenomenon among many patients who visit their general practitioner.
However, a number of patients who seem to be in need of mental help do not put forward such a demand for help, whereas other patients who express psychosocial problems to their GP are not considered to be in need, according to a standardized measure.
In this paper, a distinction has been made between the objectified needs of the patient as expressed by a standardized assessment, and the demands of the patient, expressed by the Reason for Encounter, stated during their visit at the GP.
