Mood disorders in General Practice as simple as DSM, SSRI & CBT?

Dr Simon Cowap

In the past decade mental health, and depression in particular, has received a great deal of attention both in the general and medical media. Awareness of depression has markedly increased, attempts have been made to reduce its stigma, and a lot of effort has gone into educating GPs.
No-one would argue that this has not been a positive development. However it has lead on occasions to an oversimplification, where all bad moods are depression, and depression always responds to evidence based treatment with CBT & an SSRI.

This recorded live web-cast has been organised by the Australian College of Psychological Medicine.The ACPM would like to express appreciation to the Central Sydney General Practice Network for financial support provided to assist in the production of this web-cast.
