The reliability and validity of the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K-10) for the New Young Cohort.
This project aims to examine the reliability and validity of the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K-10) for young ALSWH participants born in 1989-95 (New Young Cohort (NYC)). We will compare Kessler-10 scores to other measures of mental health, and will also examine the association with mental health service use (e.g. psychologist and psychiatrist visits). The measures of mental health that will be examined are self-reported diagnoses of mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety), stress, suicidal ideation and self-harm. We will also examine the prevalence and correlates of psychological distress at survey 1 and survey 2, and whether there are changes in prevalence and correlates of distress across these time points.
