Individuals with emotional disorders are more likely to use primary medical care than specialty mental health services, but these disorders are likely to be undetected or inadequately treated. Recognition of the importance of primary medical care for the treatment of mental disorder has resulted in pressing new research priorities. One set of issues concerns the adequacy of existing nosological systems for conceptualizing emotional disorder in primary care and identifying need for treatment. Another concerns the difficulties translating efficacious treatment into effective strategies that can be integrated into the competing demands of primary medical care. Psychologists have played only a limited role in defining and addressing emerging questions. Irreversible changes in mental health services have created the need for the development of a psychosocial perspective for what would otherwise be defined as narrowly biomedical issues. (Authors)
