With workplace mental health and wellness receiving increased attention, there has been interest in examining the effects of early treatment for patients with depression. There is a body of evidence that points to early optimized treatment providing the greatest opportunity for achieving full functional recovery.
Unfortunately, there are many stages at which a person with depression can experience a delay in receiving optimal treatment. These begin even before encountering the health system as many people do not seek treatment for depression at all. When they do, depression severity can also have an impact on the treatment they receive. And even if a minimally adequate level of treatment is received, many individuals fail to achieve adequate response or subsequently relapse.
This 60-recorded webinar with Greg Sutherland explores the potential economic benefits of overcoming some of these obstacles.
