The diamond study was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Victorian Centre of Excellence in Depression and Related Disorders, an initiative between beyond-blue and the Victorian Government. Neither funding body had a role in the study design; the collection, analysis and interpretation of data; the writing of the manuscript; or the decision to submit the manuscript for publication. We acknowledge the 30 dedicated GPs, their patients and practice staff for making our research possible. We thank the diamond project team, including the associate investigators and researchers involved in the study: Ms Darshini Ayton, Ms Vanessa Madden, Dr David Pierce, Dr Lena Sanci, Dr Jane Sims, Ms Donna Southern and the casual research staff. We also thank Felicity Goodyear-Smith for her feedback on an early draft of our article.
