Mental health status as a predictor of morbidity and mortality : a 15-year follow-up of members of a health maintenance organization.
This study sought to relate preexisting depression, worries, affect balance, and mental health symptoms to subsequent risk of morbidity and mortality.
A random sample of members of a health maintenance organization were interviewed at home in a 1970/71 survey.
Baseline psychological measures from that survey were then related to 15-year mortality and first incidence of cancer, heart disease, hypertension, stroke, functional gastrointestinal disease, and hyperimmune diseases.
