This innovative program will be implemented, evaluated and refined in selected GP practices in Kent.
Critical to this work is the involvement of patients to ensure that existing concerns and problems faced by them when seeking help with depression are addressed.
Such patient involvement is supported by MIND, a charity specialising in supporting people with mental health conditions. Through this optimised depression pathway, enabled by digital technologies we will wrap care around the patient returning them to good health sooner, thereby enabling them to return to the healthy, productive lives they desire.
If you are a primary care provider, or are responsible for the purchasing/commissioning of primary care or specialist mental health services we would welcome a discussion.
