Abstract

Mental Health Diagnostic Expert System is proposed to facilitate the inexperienced psychotherapists in Malaysia to build up their expertise in diagnosing and treating their patients, thus granting them the experience, trusts and confidence. The proposed Expert System (ES) will be used to assist the psychotherapists as if they are supervised by a real expert. Since the ES is to cater for the Malaysian public, a survey was conducted to observe public norms and abnormalities, and to learn the public's awareness regarding mental health and mental disorders. This paper discusses the results from the survey and how these results are useful in developing the ES.
