Feasibility: Diagnosis of Mental Illness among Farmworkers with a Range of Literacy

(NIOSH 2002-2003) With this project, PNASH developed an audiotape survey to assist in the diagnoses of farm worker patients with depression or other mental illnesses. This tool was developed for farmworkers who speak Spanish and have limited literacy skills. Our study found that the self-administered, tape recorded survey was reliable for diagnosis of mental illness. These audiotapes are available for use by health care providers.
