Health care reform has created opportunities for mental health nurses to develop innovative health care delivery models to provide integrated behavioral health and primary health care. A community health analysis is one method to ensure appropriate services are planned. This study examined the health care services most needed and those used by depressed and nondepressed participants (N = 231), and their satisfaction with these services. Individual and system characteristics were examined using a framework developed by Anders on and Aday. Significant differences were found between the 2 groups for predisposing characteristics, enabling characteristics, need for care, service use, and satisfaction with services.
