Abstract

The aims of this study are to describe the adequacy of treatment for anxiety and depressive disorders in Europe and how it differs between providers, using data from the ESEMeD study. The overall proportion of adequate treatment was 45.8% (57.4% in the specialised sector and 23.3% in the general medical care sector). Between-country differences were found in treatment adequacy in the specialised setting. Organisational and political aspects may explain these findings.
