Primary Care Takes Course on Cultural Issues in Depression

January 4, 2008 

Primary care clinicians are learning to appreciate cultural issues related to the diagnosis and treatment of depression in minorities thanks to a new collaboration between APA and NAMI.

A collaborative educational project between APA and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is helping to facilitate diagnosis and treatment of depression in minority and underserved patients in the setting where they are most likely to appear—primary care.

The course is being offered through APA's Office of Minority and National Affairs and NAMI's Multicultural Action Center. It's being presented around the country and has already drawn physicians and allied health professionals to New Orleans, St. Louis, and Los Angeles to learn about cultural factors that impact minorities with depression.
