Less than 50 percent of men and women with depression see a doctor for treatment
Date:9/29/2009

f men and women with depression visited a doctor for care for their condition
  • 33% of men and women discharged from hospital for severe depression did not see a doctor for a follow-up visit within 30 days
  • 17% visited a hospital emergency room within 30 days of discharge from hospital while about 8% were readmitted to hospital
  • Many older adults started on antidepressant medication did not receive the recommended number of follow-up visits to manage their condition.
  • The lack of co-ordinated care for patients suggests the need for a collaborative care-model involving a team of health-care professionals, including mental health professionals and primary care providers.

    "Research shows that patients cared for using a collaborative model are more likely to see improvement in symptoms, are able to better manage their depression and avoid multiple visits for emergency care," said Dr. Elizabeth Lin, lead author of the chapter and a research scientist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). A study by CAMH released earlier this year also found collaborative care to be a less costly and more effective way of providing mental health treatments for people on short-term disability leave for a psychiatric disorder.
