In Living Color: Depression Treatment in Primary Care
Depression is a highly common health condition affecting nearly 20 million Americans, Caucasian population and racial/ethnic minorities alike. For many patients, if they receive treatment for depression at all, it is most likely to occur in the primary care setting.

NAMI National has selected four NAMI State Office and Affiliate sites to roll out the In Living Color: Depression Treatment in Primary Care education program. The grant program will provide invaluable feedback and evaluation data to NAMI National for consideration before making the program widely available.
Program updates and information gathered from these grant sites will be shared on this site and through Recovery for All, the e-newsletter of the Multicultural Action Center.
