Research by VGCt

Which are the best questions to ask to our clients?

We are looking for input from clinicians for a large-scale 10-year transdiagnostic research project funded by the Dutch Research Council (NOW) entitled “New Science of Mental Disorders”.

In this project, patients with different forms of psychopathology will answer a set of questions multiple times per day via their mobile phones. The challenge is to keep the burden for participants as low as possible while still collecting the necessary information. Therefore, we only want to include the most relevant symptoms and variables. To develop the optimal set of questions, one crucial source of input is input from mental health experts working with patients.

Do you want to contribute to this project? Then fill out our questionnaire! The completion of this survey will only take a few minutes, and all information is processed anonymously. Thank you very much!
