Community Wellness Through Depression Recovery

Description

Depression is the leading cause of disability among adults in the United States, affecting an estimated 7% to 10% of adults and 10% to 12% of teens. The etiology is complex and involves biological, psychological, and environmental factors. Left untreated, depression can become chronic, refractory, and a cause of suicide. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends screening all individuals over 12 years of age, including pregnant and postpartum women. Pharmacists are uniquely positioned in the community to start a conversation addressing mental health stigma, screen for depression, and discuss treatment options. In this case-based session, attendees will learn how to help patients better recognize depression, when to engage in treatment, and how to achieve recovery.
