In our research we aim to develop diagnostic instruments to assess mental health and mental illnesses across the lifespan. One main focus is the establishment of structured diagnostic interviews for babies, children parents and adults. We study the reliability, validity and acceptability of our instruments as well as means to disseminate the use of evidence-based assessments amongst practitioners. Another line of research deals with the prevalence of and risk factors for misdiagnosis.
