This project focuses on evaluation of a collaborative care system for treatment of depression in Vietnam. This system involves training para-professional health care workers in a stepped-care model system of depression care to be implemented in commune health stations in Vietnam.
It is hypothesized that treatment group participants will have significantly lower levels of depression on the primary outcome measure than the control group participants at post-treatment and follow-up.
