Owing mostly to embarrassment, most of the 12 million Americans with clinical depression do not get treated. Instead of going to a mental health professional, those who do seek help often go to their primary care physicians. The problem with this approach is that general practitioners are not always able to identify depression. According to one scientific review of 41 previous studies involving more than 50,000 patients, general practitioners miss cases of depression about 50 percent of the time, and they incorrectly diagnose it in 19 percent of healthy people. These percentages are truly significant because, if left untreated, depression can be debilitating. Thus, it is important to get help for this problem by visiting a specialist in mental health.
