As many as half of patients experiencing a major depressive episode will have 3 or more subsyndromal manic or hypomanic symptoms, complicating the diagnosis and treatment choices. In an effort to better define this patient cohort, the latest version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders includes the option of the “with mixed features” specifier for patients experiencing depressive episodes. The goal of this Evidence-Based Best-Practices™ program is to provide psychiatrists and other health care providers with practical recommendations for identifying depressed patients with mixed features and tailoring evidence-based therapy to address their subsyndromal symptoms.
