Predicting Quality Adjusted Life Years in young people attending primary mental health services

Applying model modules from the Spring To Life model of people to map psychological and functional measures to AQoL-6D health utility

We applied our youthvars and TTU modules to developing a dataset of transfer to utility models that can be used to predict adolescent weighted AQoL-6D health utility from a range of psychological distress, depression, anxiety and functioning predictors. Vignettes from the youthu R package illustrate (using fake data) how these models can be used to derive Quality Adjusted Life Year predictions. A preprint describing this study is now available at: The three toolkits, the dataset and the pre-print are outputs of the Spring To Life model of people.
