Description

Patients with certain dermatologic skin diseases have been found to be at increased risk for depression and suicidal ideation. As there is not much information available on mental health interventions taken in dermatologic practices, we conducted a survey to assess the extent to which dermatologists monitor and follow up with the mental health of their patients. We discovered that dermatologists are aware of mental health issues associated with these dermatologic diseases but have no standard of care for their assessment. By obtaining this information, we can enable ourselves to fill in these deficiencies to help improve patient care.
