The primary goal of this project is to quantitatively compare the treatment experience, engagement, self-reported clinical outcomes, and recovery-oriented outcomes of patients initially randomized to telepsychiatry collaborative care and telepsychiatry enhanced referral. In addition, for the subset of patients randomized to telepsychiatry enhanced referral who do not engage in treatment and are still symptomatic at 6 months, an additional goal is to quantitatively compare the treatment experience, treatment engagement, self-reported clinical outcomes and recovery-oriented outcomes of patients randomized to continued- telepsychiatry enhanced referral or phone enhanced referral. Additional goals are to gain an in-depth understanding of patients’ and providers’ treatment experiences and to examine treatment heterogeneity among subgroups of patients based on race/ethnicity, age and clinical severity.
