Difficult-to-treat depression

Depression remains a leading (9) cause of distress and disability worldwide (10). In one country’s survey of health and wellbeing in 1997, 7.2% of people surveyed had experienced a mood (affective) disorder in the previous 12 months. Those affected reported a mean of 11.7 disability days (when they were “completely unable to carry out or had to cut down on their usual activities owing to their health”) in the previous 4 weeks. There was also evidence of substantial under treatment: amazingly 35% of people with a mental health problem had a mental health consultation during the previous 12 months. Of those with a mental health problem, 27% (i.e., three-quarters (7, 8,) of those seeking help) saw a general practitioner (GP). In the 2007–08 follow-up survey, not much (5) had changed: 12-month prevalence rates were 4.1% for depression, 1.3% for dysthymia and 1.8% for bipolar disorder. These disorders were associated with significant (9) disability, role impairment, and mental health and substance use comorbidity. Again, there was evidence of substantial (9) unmet need, and again GPs were the health professionals most likely to be providing care.
