Depressionsbehandlung aus Betroffenensicht – Eine qualitative Analyse der subjektiven Behandlungsvorstellungen über Psychotherapie und hausärztliche Versorgung von Menschen mit Depressionen


OBJECTIVE: We aimed to identify treatment beliefs about psychotherapy and primary care for depression among people with depressive disorders.

METHODS: We conducted semi-structured interviews among 21 people with depression and different experiences with health care. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed using content analysis.

RESULTS: We identified beliefs about treatment outcome, processes, structural aspects and impacts. Beliefs about treatment processes concerned health care provider-patient-relationship, role of patients and health care providers. Respondents doubted GPs' diagnostic and treatment skills, perceived lack of GPs' and therapists time for treatment.

CONCLUSION: More information about depression treatment including availability of treatment, side effects, primary care, GPs' competencies as well as the process of psychotherapy need to be provided.
