Depression

The negative stigma of mental illness and substance abuse, among other factors, has led to millions of people with these problems never receiving treatment. To fill this gap in care, Atlantic Health System has begun making screenings for depression, anxiety and alcohol or substance abuse part of the primary care doctor visit. Based on the results, a supervising psychiatrist makes recommendations, which could include medication or referral to an outpatient program or rehab facility.
