Community-based Treatments Offset Depression Disparities

Depression can affect anyone, but it hits ethnic groups more heavily because the poor often have less access to quality health care. To offset this imbalance, researchers from the RAND Corporation and UCLA, and community partners from more than two dozen community agencies, compared whether evidence-based quality improvement programs, which include psychotherapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy and antidepressant medications, are better implemented through involvement of the entire community or through clinic-based programs. The findings, which show the former to be the case, are reported in two papers published online by the Journal of General Internal Medicine. Project officer and Associate Director of Dissemination and Implementation Research at the National Institute of Mental Health David Chambers, Ph.D., discusses the significance of these findings.
