原文1：In a World Health Organization (WHO) study of 15 facilities across the world, the prevalence of mental disorders (as defined in the Tenth Revision of the International Classification of Diseases – ICD 10) among consecutive primary care attenders was 24% (2). In addition, people with mental disorders usually present to primary care physicians with physical symptoms. In this study, 69% of patients with mental disorders presented in this way.
原文2：In several countries it has been reported that as many as 50% of depression cases go unrecognized in primary care settings
- Depression can be reliably diagnosed and treated in primary care.
- Fewer than 25 % of those affected have access to effective treatments.
Depression can be reliably diagnosed in primary care. Antidepressant medications and brief, structured forms of psychotherapy are effective for 60-80 % of those affected and can be delivered in primary care. However, fewer than 25 % of those affected (in some countries fewer than 10 %) receive such treatments. Barriers to effective care include the lack of resources, lack of trained providers, and the social stigma associated with mental disorders including depression.
