Abstract:

Depression is a burdensome disorder that affects millions worldwide. It is among the most common mental health disorders but also one of the most treatable. Nonetheless, not all individuals struggling with depression receive high-quality, evidence-based care. Clinical practice guidelines for the care of depressed patients in outpatient settings have been established, as well as evidence-based care practices to provide better diagnoses, treatment, and referral forthese patients both within primary care settings and within specialty care settings. In many health care systems, however, guideline implementation has not reached acceptable levels in routine care settings, leading to under-, over-, and incorrect treatment of depression.
