The Global Mental Health Assessment Tool (GMHAT is a computerised clinical assessment tool developed to rapidly assess and identify mental health problems in a range of settings. The tool was tested with 200 Syrian refugees aged 18+ years in one clinic in Beirut, Lebanon who were being processed for resettlement to the UK as part of the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme.
This report summarises the evaluation findings on how this tool worked in practice at identifying immediate mental health needs requiring urgent attention prior to departure and in facilitating diagnoses, referrals and treatment once in the UK.
