Depression Care Program
The General Internal Medicine Clinic provides comprehensive health care services. Depression is a medical illness that significantly affects health, self-care, and management of chronic illnesses. The Clinic began screening all patients in March 2010. Our Depression Care Program tracks the progress of patients who screen positive. If you are a patient of the Clinic and have depression, your Provider will provide information about depression, discuss available treatments and develop an individualized treatment plan to help you.
