Experimental: Family-based depression intervention
The family-focused component will consist of up to up to 10 joint (i.e. older man alone and/or with family members) sessions that will cover specific topics related to family support of men's depression care provided by a clinic-based social worker
Behavioral: Family-based depression intervention
The primary focus of our approach is on effectively engaging family members of depressed older men in the care of the patient. The interventionist (social worker) will 1) work jointly with a family member and older men to strengthen depression self-management and participation during primary care visits and 2) conduct a brief training module for primary care provider skills to strengthen their skills in working with family members.
Active Comparator: Usual care plus educational materials
Control subjects will receive usual care in the clinic enhanced by a single depression psychoeducation session.
Behavioral: Usual care plus educational materials
Control subjects will receive usual care in the clinic augmented by psychoeducation. Family members will be given standard psychoeducational materials on depression.
