Unipolar depression is a common disorder which may be treated by drugs or psychological intervention. Many patients prefer psychological treatment, but there is a lack of professional skills and methods for effectively dealing with this in the primary health services,where most of the depressed patients are seen.For this reason it is of great importance to develop and test psychological methods which may be applied in the primary health services, as well as in the specialized psychiatric services.In the present study a psychoeducational group method is tested, with trained psychiatric nurses as the most common group leaders.
