Hooshyar D, Goulet J, Chwastiak L, Crystal S, Gibert C, Mattocks K, Rimland D, Rodriguez-Barradas M, Justice AC, VACS Project Team. Time to depression treatment in primary care among HIV-infected and uninfected veterans. Journal of general internal medicine. 2010 Jul 1; 25(7):656-62.
In this large cohort, time to primary care treatment of depression was shortest among severely depressed HIV-infected patients. Regardless of HIV serostatus, if depression was not treated on the assessment day, then it was unlikely to be treated within a 90-day period, leading to the majority of depression being untreated.
