Depression Survey: Implications for Diverse Communities
Date:12/10/2009

ctors include a desire "to make it on my own" whether they believe treatment is working and in the case of medication, side effects.
  • Almost 50 percent of caregivers who responded had been diagnosed with depression themselves, but only about 25 percent said they were engaged in treatment.
  • "The survey reveals gaps and guideposts on roads to recovery," said NAMI Executive Director Michael Fitzpatrick. "It tells what has been found helpful in treating depression. It can help caregivers better anticipate stress that will confront them. It reflects issues that need to be part of health care reform."

    The National Alliance on Mental Illness is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. NAMI has over 1100 state and local affiliates that engage in research, education, support and advocacy.
