Welcome to the Ottawa Depression Algorithm, an online depression algorithm designed to be used by primary care professionals (such as family physicians and nurse practitioners) in the treatment of adult depression in your office, at point of care. It helps you assess, diagnosis and manage your patient. Should you decide to refer, it has information and links to local resources.

Simply click on the boldly outlined boxes in the Algorithm for more information and resources about managing depression in primary care…
