Depression is a common condition frequently managed in primary care.

Identifying and managing depression in a rural context presents a unique set of challenges for health professionals providing mental health care in their communities.

Dealing with Depression in Rural Australia is a highly interactive, multidisciplinary program developed specifically to address the needs of clinicians delivering health care for people presenting with depression in a rural setting.

Using a case-based problem solving format, the program outlines a practical framework for assessment and management planning readily applicable to primary care.

Target Audience: GPs, GP Registrars, Psychologists, Mental Health Clinicians and Allied Health Professionals
