Abstract

Current evidence indicates there remains a large gap in the provision of depression care, particularly in primary care. Several studies have demonstrated that interventions based on the chronic disease management model can improve patient outcomes. Challenges include designing more robust interventions that can move easily into a wide variety of primary care organizations. More research is needed to develop programs to improve outcomes for children with depression and adults with bipolar disorders.
