Adult Congenital Heart Disease: Developing Australian Anxiety and Depression Guidelines

Back to search results

Despite the documented high prevalence of psychological morbidity amongst adults with congenital heart disease (CHD), the availability of effective interventions for anxiety and depression, and repeated recommendations for routine psychosocial assessment and an integrated approach to mental health care in medical settings, there are currently no studies assessing the impact, acceptability and cost-effectiveness of this model of care in Australia or overseas. The current state of evidence indicates there is an urgent need for a rigorously-designed trial of integrated routine psychosocial assessment and stepped care for the 65,000 Australians living with CHD. This project will develop and evaluate this model.
