WHO World Mental Health Composite International Diagnostic Interview (WHO WMH-CIDI): Social Networks

The World Health Organization World Mental Health Composite International Diagnostic Interview (WHO WMH-CIDI): Social Networks is a 15-item measure, derived from WHO WMH-CIDI, which is a comprehensive, fully-structured interview designed to be used for the assessment of mental disorders in epidemiological, as well as clinical settings. The measure captures respondent’s current social life and social networks. Navigational aspects (i.e. skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included on this page but can be viewed on the original questionnaire located here.

13. Next, I will read three statements and ask how much each one sounds like you. First, “I find it relatively easy to get close to other people. I am comfortable depending on others and having them depend on me. I don’t worry about being abandoned or about someone getting too close to me.” How much does this sound like you – a lot, some, a little, or not at all?

14. Here is the next statement. “I am somewhat uncomfortable being close to others; I find it difficult to trust them completely and difficult to depend on them. I am nervous when anyone gets too close to me.” How much does this sound like you – a lot, some, a little, or not at all?

15. Now the third statement. “I find that others are reluctant to get as close as I would like. I often worry that people who I care about do not love me or won’t want to stay with me. I want to merge completely with another person, and this desire sometimes scares people away.” How much does this sound like you – a lot, some, a little, or not at all?

Response Options:
A lot - 1
Some - 2
A little - 3
Not at all - 4
Don’t know - 8
