Featured Clinics

This display highlights the top 10 clinics that help adults reach remission from depression symptoms, 6 months after starting treatment.

The statewide rate is 8% for all reporting clinics.

This means that for every 100 patients who started depression treatment, 8 patients were in remission with few or no symptoms 6 months later. 

How the clinics compare

Most people who seek treatment for depression can improve to where they are remission - they feel better, and have few symptoms of depression or none at all.

The featured clinics had rates between 46% and 22% - well above the statewide rate of 8% but still showing room to improve.

The MNHealthScores Featured Clinics list is based on clinic performance for depression remission at 6 months.

Standards of Care

Standards of care are treatment guidelines that are generally accepted by health care professionals as valid and supported by sound scientific evidence.

Treatment

Treatment for depression can make a difference, even if you have severe depression. For some people, talking with a therapist can help them feel better.

Standard Care

Talking with a therapist is one common approach to depression care. Others benefit from medication or need a combination of medication and therapy. The first step is to visit a health care provider.
