AbstractNinety-one Chinese in the community, aged between 18 and 45, with mental health problems ranging from mild to moderate degree, were treated by cognitive behavioural group therapy (CBGT) for a period of 3 months. All subjects were assessed on multiple measures at 4 time points: screening, pre-treatment (after 3 months), post-treatment and at 3-month follow-up. Attendance was good. A standard practice manual was developed to ensure consistent treatment by 2 group workers. After controlling for the placebo effect in the waiting period, treatment effect was demonstrated which was sustained after a three month period. The all-round improvement included a decrease in psychiatric symptoms, improvement in self-assessment, better and more social activities and being more able to cope with problems. In terms of psychiatric diagnosis, depressed subjects gained the most benefit and personality disorder subjects the least. Parents seemed to benefit more than non-parents.
