Report on pilot of global mental health assessment tool

The government has published a report on the global mental health assessment tool (GMHAT), which was piloted in 2016/17 by Public Health England, the Home Office and the International Organization for Migration.

The GMHAT is a computerised clinical assessment tool developed to assess and identify mental health problems rapidly in a range of settings. The tool was tested with 200 Syrian refugees aged 18 and over in one clinic in Beirut, Lebanon who were being processed for resettlement to the UK as part of the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme.
