Abstract

Objective
To analyze mental distress in relation to participation in lifestyle intervention.

Methods
In 2000–2001 a total of 1948 consecutive participants, living in the suburbs of Copenhagen, were asked to complete a short version of SCL-90-R (anxiety, depression, and somatization) before screening, immediately after screening, and one and 10 months after screening. The screening classified participants into high or low risk individuals. High risk individuals received personal lifestyle counselling and were randomized to either group-based counselling (A) or referred care (B). Multilevel regression models taking into account repeated measurements and missing data at follow-up were performed.
