Clinical, or major, depression is a significant chronic disease worldwide. The World Health Organization predicts that, as is already the case in the U.S., unipolar depression (without mania or hypomania) will be surpassed only by heart disease as the leading cause of disability and premature death in all developed countries by 2020. This module will focus on unipolar depression, particularly on screening and accurate diagnosis; treatment and treatment compliance will be covered in less detail. Anxiety will be discussed in the context of its occurrence with depression.


The purpose of this program is to provide nurses and social workers with up-to-date information on depression and anxiety, particularly screening, diagnosis, treatment and adherence. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe multiple symptom levels of depression and questions to ask to screen for depression
  • Discuss comorbidity of depression with anxiety and medical conditions
  • Discuss treatment patterns and when to refer
