VA Health Care: Improvements Needed in Monitoring Antidepressant Use for Major Depressive Disorder and in Increasing Accuracy of Suicide Data
Randall B. Williamson (au)
In 2013, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) estimated that about 1.5 million veterans required mental health care, including services for major depressive disorder (MDD). MDD is a debilitating mental illness related to reduced quality of life and productivity, and increased risk for suicide. VA also plays a role in suicide prevention. This report reviewed how VA tracks veterans prescribed antidepressants and what suicide data VA uses in its prevention efforts. It examines (1) VA's data on veterans with MDD, including those prescribed an antidepressant; (2) the extent that veterans with MDD who are prescribed antidepressants receive recommended care and the extent to which VA monitors such care; and (3) the quality of data VA requires Veterans Affairs medical center (VAMCs) to collect on veteran suicides. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
