    Good depression care takes time and can cause a busy office schedule to spin out of control for the rest of the day. With an offsite Depression Care Manager, you make the diagnosis and start treatment, knowing that a skilled professional at no expense to you will:
            • Educate the patient about depression and its treatment
            • Repeatedly monitor the patient's response to treatment
            • Alert you if the patient fails to improve
    Clinical trials demonstrate better outcomes for patients who participate in Depression Care Management, thereby increasing efficiency in treating patients with depression. Let Depression Care Management provide your patients the education and coordinated follow-up care they need to get on with their lives.
     
    How Depression Care Management Reduces Employee Suffering
     
    The following graphs show how Depression Care Management increases remission and reduces emotional impairment over a two-year period compared to the care patients generally receive.
     
    Depression Remission
     
    Depressed individuals are determined to be in remission when they no longer report a period of two weeks where they feel A.) down, depressed or hopeless or B.) little interest or pleasure on doing things.
     
     
    Emotional Impairment Days
     
    Emotional impairment days are days when an individual’s emotional problems are so severe that s/he has to cut back on normal activities by at least a half-day or stay in bed. Depression Care Management reduces the emotional impairment days each individual suffers by an average of 31.0 days each year over usual care.

    We have 12 organizations that serve more than 30,000 individuals and families each year through behavioral health services, counseling services, career services, education, housing, jail diversion/reintegration, telephonic wellness and care management.

    We collaborate with clergy, educators, employers, other health and human service agencies, the legal/criminal justice system, other behavioral health providers, insurers, and many other organizations to leverage our collective resources in order to better our communities and the lives of its residents.

    We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit funded largely by Medicaid, state and federal grants, local government contracts, and generous donations.
