  1. Sociodemographic, clinical, and attitudinal characteristics of the untreated depressed in Ontario.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    Epidemiologic surveys consistently document high rates of untreated depression, yet why this unmet need exists is only partially understood.

    Methods 

    We compared untreated depressed, treated depressed and « healthy » subjects on sociodemographic characteristics, need for treatment, and help-seeking attitudes using household survey data from Ontario, Canada (n=9953).

    DSM-III R Major Depression was assessed by structured interview (UM-CIDI), and treatment was defined as seeking formal mental health care.

    Need for treatment was assessed using a broad array of clinical, disability, and risk measures.

    Results 

    Depressed (treated and untreated) and « healthy » respondents differed significantly on nearly all comparative measures.

    However, the two depressed groups showed few sociodemographic or « need for treatment » differences.

    Notably, there were no significant clinical differences although the untreated did report less physical comorbidity (33.9% vs 60.0% treated depressed).

    There were, however, several attitudinal differences.

    Compared to the treated depressed, untreated respondents were less likely to feel they had a mental health problem (51.6% vs. 78.8%), to say they would seek help for a serious problem (36.6% vs 64.7%) or to feel comfortable consulting a professional (19.0% vs. 43.2%). Limitations : Because the data are cross-sectional, temporal relationships cannot be directly addressed. (...)
