Depression in a Latino immigrant medical population: an exploratory screening and diagnosis.

Author information

Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco.


Interviews with 48 Latino medical outpatients assessed depression via a brief self-report screening measure and a structured diagnostic interview. Twenty-eight percent of the sample received a DSM-III-R diagnosis of major depression. Validity information is provided for the screening measure, which can be used with Latino medical patients, a traditionally high-risk group for depressive disorders.
