Depression Management Benchmarks:
Trends in Integration of Behavioral and Physical Health

As the stigma once associated with mental illness recedes somewhat, there is
a growing recognition in primary care that depression needs to be identified
and treated because of its comorbidity with other chronic conditions and its
impact on patient adherence to treatment recommendations.

Depression Management Benchmarks: Trends in Integration of Behavioral and Physical Health

Depression Management Benchmarks: Trends in

or already utilizing an integrated approach to mental

A 2007 National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors study
jarred the medical community, revealing that, on average, people with severe
mental illness die 25 years earlier than the general population. Compared
with non-depressed medically ill patients, patients with major depression
are three times more likely to disregard treatment recommendations, and a
2000 study estimated the total cost of depression in the U.S. at $83.1
billion for direct treatment, mortality, excess absenteeism and productivity
loss. Even though the majority of depressed people turn first to their
primary care providers (PCPS) for assistance, the condition is frequently
missed or incorrectly diagnosed because PCPs are not sufficiently trained
in recognizing the signs of depression.

This exclusive report analyzes the responses of 260 healthcare organizations
to HIN's 2008 Industry Survey on Depression Management, presenting the data
in more than 30 easy-to-follow graphs and tables.
