The article discusses diagnosis and treatment of depression in primary health care. In primary care setting, depression is normally approached by general practitioners with medical management that they have inherited from interests of psychiatry and pharmaceutical companies. Treatment drop-out is considered as the most challenging part of depression treatment in primary health care in 2012. The author says there is a need to resist financial incentivization in treating depression.
