Mount Sinai Health Partners Mind Matters ECHO: Effective Treatments for Depression: Pharmacology

Mount Sinai Health Partners Mind Matters ECHO: Effective Treatments for Depression: Pharmacology

In the third meeting of our 2022 depression module, Dr. Stephen Sisselman presents the case of a 20 year old patient with depression and persistent suicidal thoughts and cultural barriers to support. He discusses how he intervened when this patient presented with suicidality on the PHQ-9 and seeks feedback from the group on how to handle difficult cases where patients lack family support. Dr. Katie Angelova then gives a didactic presentation on pharmacological management of depression in the primary care setting. She provides an overview of common agents (SSRIs, SNRIs, buproprion, etc.), tips for speaking with patients about antidepressant therapy, and indications for when to switch agents.
