Abstract
In contrast to the broad literature on depression in the general population, little is known about the management of depression affecting gay men and HIV-positive men attending general practice clinics. This paper explores qualitative descriptions of how depression in gay men and HIV-positive men is managed by GPs. Despite the identification of several key strengths in working with this patient group, the ability of GPs to develop their capacity to manage depression in gay men and men with HIV is uncertain in the context of a growing range of challenges for GPs in both mental health and HIV care.
