Description

This journal article on depression treatment guidelines has been developed for mental health professionals. It describes treatment options for the depression sub-types as well as options for particular population groups. The guidelines are based on a review of the literature on depression treatment outcomes and discussions with mental health professionals and patients. These guidelines are not Indigenous specific guidelines but they will be relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with depression.

Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

When to use this resource

Mental health professionals should use this information as a guide when treating adults with depression. Practitioners should use this as a guide only because the choice of treatment for someone with depression will depend on the skill of the practitioner, and the patient's preferences and personal situation.
