Summary
Brief summary
This study has been designed to test a depression risk assessment questionnaire. Patients who have been admitted to hospital for severe chest pain or a heart attack often get depressed once they have returned home. By asking patient certain questions about their past mental health and recent events we hope to predict which patients may be at risk of becoming depressed.
