Error in Figure/Table

In the original article [1], there was an error in Table 1 as published. The General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) was scored with a 1–4, rather than a 0–3, scale. The altered scores do not affect the subsequent analysis or results. The corrected Table 1 appears below. The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused and state that the scientific conclusions are unaffected. The original article has been updated.
