Comments:Help on this termPerceived psychological distress is a non-specific dimension of psychopathology and it indicates that something is wrong. It does not necessarily involve a mental illness or require services from the mental health system. However, cultural variations in experiencing and expressing the inner feelings and emotions have to be taken into account when interpreting the results (ECHIM 2008).
