Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To implement a pilot quality improvement project for depression identification and treatment in college health.

PARTICIPANTS:

Eight college health center teams composed primarily of primary care and counseling service directors and clinicians.

METHODS:

Chronic (Collaborative) Care Model (CCM) used with standardized screening to identify, treat, and track depressed students for 12 weeks to monitor predetermined process and clinical outcomes.

RESULTS:

Of all students receiving primary medical care services between January 2007 and May 2008, 69% (n = 71,908) were screened for depression. A total of 801 depressed students were treated and tracked; most predetermined treatment process and clinical outcome targets were achieved.

CONCLUSION:

The CCM for depression shows promise for improving depression identification and care for college students.
