Study Description
Brief Summary:
This stepped wedge, randomized controlled trial will test the effectiveness of a Supported Self-Management intervention for depression among adults in Vietnam. The intervention will be delivered at the community level in 8 Vietnamese provinces by primary care providers and social workers. The intervention group will receive the Supported Self-Management intervention, while the control group will receive enhanced treatment as usual.

The World Health Organization's Disability Assessment Scale (WHODAS 2.00 and the CAGE (Concern/Cut-down, Anger, Guilt, and Eye-opener) measures are also used to assess functional ability and alcohol misuse.
