Methods have been developed to screen non psychotic disorders in general health clinics based only on non-specific and somatic symptoms. One such method developed in India was applied in a heterogenous group of patients in a different clinical setting. The validity of nonspecific symptom screening method for non psychotic illness was replicated in this study. This method of screening is recommended for routine use in screening for minor psychiatric morbidity in medical and surgical clinics.
