Reinventing Depression

A History of the Treatment of Depression in Primary Care, 1940-2004

Christopher M. Callahan, M.D. and German E. Berrios, M.D.

By tracing the history of depression in primary care over the past half century in the US and UK, this book opens a pathway for future improvements in the treatment of depressed patients. The authors argue for a public health perspective that will place more emphasis on the roles of society and culture in causing depression and will help close the gap between primary care practice and psychiatric knowledge.
