This study will determine the effectiveness of offering primary care patients their preferred treatment versus one that is less desirable in improving treatment adherence and outcome.

Study summary:

This study investigates whether offering primary care patients treatment that is congruent with their preferred first choice improves adherence and outcomes, in comparison to offering treatment that is not congruent with their preferred first choice. All subjects are offered a treatment with demonstrated efficacy, namely either the antidepressant medication escitalopram or Interpersonal Psychotherapy for 5 months. We hypothesize that patients who receive congruent treatment will be more likely to initiate treatment, adhere to treatment, and achieve depression remission.
