Part 1: Addressing Depression in People with HIV


Join Dr. Cournos for the start of our series on providing mental health care to people with HIV in primary care settings. Learn about the importance of addressing depression in this population and how to do so effectively using evidence-based approaches to diagnosing and treating depressive illnesses. We’ll also discuss how to differentiate major depression from bipolar disorders and how their treatments differ. Finally, we’ll look into the latest evidence on how treating depression impacts both mental health and HIV outcomes.
