QALYs in mental health : a case study.
The applicability of the Charing Cross health indicator (CH-X) to the field of mental health was investigated in a community setting using descriptive statistics and principal components analysis.
The CH-X is based on assessments of (i) distress and (ii) disability.
Our results suggest that with respect to quality of life in mental health settings measurements of distress may be of greater importance than disability.
In addition, the CH-X may be insensitive to variations in the severity of mental disorder and may primarily reflect physical disability as opposed to social disability.
