    Abstract

    Objective: Depression has economic consequences not only for the health system, but also for individuals and soci - ety. This study aims to quantify the potential economic impact of five-yearly screening for sub-syndromal depression in general practice among Australians aged 45-64 years, followed by a group-based psychological intervention to prevent progression to depression. Method: We used an epidemiological simulation model to estimate reductions in prevalence of depression, and a micro - simulation model, HealthWealthMOD2030, to estimate the impact on labour force participation, personal income, savings, taxation revenue and welfare expenditure.
