Abstract

According to the basic health research report in 2013, the Indonesian population has a mental disorder prevalence of up to 6 percent. The one of mental disorder is depression. Subject on this paper, focus on depression in marriage life. Recognizing depression is important. A psychologist usually performs a psychological assessment to achieve the prognosis and decide what strategies or approaches. Some case of depression involved by more than one psychologist. Therefore, to accommodate this condition, every psychologist can provide his preferences on criterion. Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) is the psychological assessment that usually used, but the BDI manual has determined one weight for all criteria, does not support group assessment. Hence, this paper proposes a new model which is combining BDI with another model resolve that issues. It is a group decision support model who combines BDI with Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Geometric Mean. The model provides an opportunity for the group of a psychologist to give their preferences with a minimal element of subjectivity. A group decision support model has been produced to determine the level of depression among married couples. Based on testing to expert, the proposed model is quite valid.
