I am writing to raise awareness of a U.S. National Survey regarding the treatment of depression, currently being led by Dartmouth College. The goal of the project is to identify ways that we can better engage individuals who have depression in their care and decision making regarding treatment.
The survey is being conducted with individuals in the U.S. who have been treated for depression and clinicians in any field (all mental health clinicians, ARNPs, PAs, MDs) who have treated or counseled an individual(s) with depression. Both patients and clinicians were consulted in the development of the research plan and in identifying the information priorities that are most important to these groups when making an informed treatment decision.
The survey is anonymous. Protected health information (PHI) will not be collected and Institutional Review Board approval for the project has been granted by Dartmouth College.
I would encourage you to complete the survey or learn more by clicking on the link below.

We would be delighted if you would consider posting a link within your own organizations and via social media if you use Facebook or Twitter. Also, if you are interested in sharing the patient version with your patient population, please distribute the following link: Patient survey: bit.ly/1o8KAU4
Thanks for your help,
