The mental health and illness is identified as one of the most
pressing health concerns of the 21st century. Many studies show
that Neuropsychiatric disorders account for substantial count of
Disability-Adjusted Life Years out of total DALYs for all
disorders. It is estimated that by the year 2020, depression will
become second leading cause for disease burden. Approximately 24
percent of the patients visiting the primary health care physician
suffer from well defined ICD-10 mental disorder and 69 percent of
them remain undiagnosed. Hence, it is essential that we must have
adequate preventional and interventional mental health services
rooted in primary care. The present study will facilitate in
identification of potential individuals with disorders and extent
of needed care at primary level in the Indian context.
