Abstract

The majority of patients with mental health problems are treated solely within primary care. This article discusses the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of mood disorders in primary care. Factors influencing recognition, the use of screening instruments, and somatization are discussed. The article also outlines the latest recommendations for the management of depression in primary care using a stepped care model.
