Development of the illness perception questionnaire mental health.
Summary of "Development of the illness perception questionnaire mental health."
Background:â€ƒIt has been suggested that illness perceptions in mental health are related to treatment outcomes. Aims:â€ƒWe aimed to develop a short generic questionnaire to assess clients' problem perceptions in mental health, congruent with the Illness Perception Questionnaire (IPQ) for somatic health. Methods:â€ƒWe adapted the IPQ-R (Moss-Morris, R., Weinman, J., Petrie, K.J., Horne, R., Cameron, L.D., & Buick, D. ( 2002 ). Psychology and Health, 17, 1-16) to psychological complaints, in particular the IPQ-R's scales that assess clients' perceptions of what their problem actually is and what its causes are. We administered our adapted instrument, the IPQ-MH, to large groups of mental health clients, and subsequently performed psychometric analyses over the scores. Results:â€ƒThe identity scale of the IPQ-MH differentiates different clients; the structure scale of the IPQ-MH replicates that of the original IPQ-R; the cause scale reliably measures clients' attributions of causes to their mental problems. Conclusions:â€ƒWe conclude that our IPQ-MH can reliably assess clients' mental health problem perceptions.
