There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that collaborative mental health care between family doctors and psychiatrists will enhance patient care (1–3). In primary care, the need for mental health support from psychiatry exceeds available resources, and patients may be reluctant to access psychiatric support, even if it were available to them. The literature on collaborative mental health care is becoming more robust as clinicians write of new ways to “share care” with colleagues possessing varied levels of skill and with those from different disciplines (4–6). A recent randomized controlled study (3) found collaborative care (mental health professionals working in a primary-care practice) to be effective in treating common mental disorders and significantly more efficient than usual care on indicators such as referral delay, duration of treatment, number of appointments, and costs related to treatment. Another study (6) compared the perspectives of residency training directors in psychiatry and primary care on the primary-care mental health programs at their institutions. The results showed that although there was general agreement that primary-care physicians should be able to treat most uncomplicated psychiatric cases, there was overall dissatisfaction with the psychiatric training in primary-care residency programs.
