The Community of Practice Experience with PHQ-9 and GAD-7

Given the current, fragmented landscape of mental health data, there is a critical need to take pragmatic action to make mental health research easier to compare, communicate and interpret. Developing common measures requires the participation of experts from around the world with knowledge of how measures work in various settings.

This virtual workshop was held by the IAMHRF Common Measures Governance Board to consult researchers on their experiences using, interpreting, and adapting selected mental health common measures instruments in diverse global, socio-cultural, income and research contexts.
