The 10-minute consultation: depression

Advisory board: A Tylee E Vieta A Young


Clinical depression is currently the leading cause of disability in the USA and is expected to become the second leading cause of disability worldwide (after heart disease) by the year 2020, according to the World Health Organization. The economic cost is, therefore, high. Most people with a depressive illness do not seek treatment or are unrecognised in primary care, although the great majority can be successfully treated because there are now effective medications and psychosocial therapies.

The 10-minute consultation: depression is an authoritative and accessible guide for the primary care clinician to assist treatment decisions. The handbook covers diagnosis, prevention, treatment and management, and includes drug reference tables (with contraindications, drug interactions and side effects), clinical trial information that support the best-practice guidelines and links to supplementary resources for both clinicians and patients.

The clinician's manual is designed to be used in the clinic and for studying, containing targeted guidance on all aspects of the primary care clinician's role. Written by experienced key opinion leaders, the book supports everyday patient care and improved outcomes.

Andre Tylee is Professor of Primary Care Mental Health at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College Hospital, UK.

Eduard Vieta is Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Bipolar Disorders Program of the Hospital Clinic at the University of Barcelona, Spain.

Allan Young is Professor of Psychiatry at Imperial College London, UK, where he is also Director of the Centre for Mental Health within the Division of Brain Sciences, and Chair of the Psychopharmacology Group in the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
