Episode 363: Depression in primary care – talk first and prescribe later – PART II

In episode 363, James, Mike, Bruce and Helena continue to talk about depression in primary care. The key messages are that instead of calling it depression we should consider telling people they are “stuck”, negotiate non drug therapies like behavioural activation, do follow-up phone calls and basically NEVER prescribe an antidepressant on the first visit.
