Jennifer Funderburk, PhD
Seminar date: 6/10/2019
Description: Within the VA, the inclusion of PCMHI providers in a majority of primary care clinics allows for the provision of brief interventions to help reduce depressive symptoms and prevent further escalation; however, there are limited options for evidence-based interventions. This presentation will provide a summary of a brief behavioral activation intervention for Veterans with a range of depressive symptoms and the initial results of that trial.
Intended Audience: Primary care and PCMHI providers, researchers, and policy makers.
