  • This paper explores the potential of community-based, public health-oriented interventions as a tool for reducing the burden of affective disorders on individuals, their families, and communities. The paper reviews the use of community-based interventions with other health-related problems and describes potential applicability for affective disorders such as changing public attitudes, reducing social stigma, facilitating access, or supporting treatment adherence for populations in their cummunity settings. An agenda for developing this field of intervention research is proposed.
