Including Mental Health as Part of a Health Check

If mental health was made part of a health check, i.e., in addition to taking blood pressure, cholesterol level, and waist measurement, etc., then it would be possible to detect vulnerable people who have not received assistance from doctors or psychologists for their psychological problems. This is shown by a new study in Preventive Medicine Report from Aarhus University.

Do you agree that a mental health assessment should be performed at the same time a patient undergoes a traditional physical health check?
