Although rates of common mental disorders (CMD) are acknowledged to be high amongst community-living Indigenous Australians, most data are derived from self-report. In the first study of its kind, using a structured clinical diagnostic interview, the prevalence of common mental disorders in a cohort of Indigenous Australians has been determined. Multiple projects investigating mental health disorders in this population are available.
