Free online cognitive-behavioural therapy for depression

 Are you interested in receiving free online cognitive-behavioural therapy for depression?

Professor Ed Watkins from the Mood Disorders Centre, University of Exeter has just launched an innovative trial to better understand the active ingredients of online cognitive behavioural treatment so that we can build stronger, better and more widely available treatments. The Wellcome funded IMPROVE trial provides free and open access online cognitive-behavioural therapy for people with major depression, supported by online guidance from a trained psychological wellbeing practitioner.

The treatment study is open to participants from anywhere in the world with good English who are experiencing moderate to severe levels of depression, who are interested in receiving internet cognitive-behavioural therapy, and are not currently receiving psychotherapy. The first step in entering the study is to go to our online mood screener, which assesses and gives feedback on level of depression, and checks suitability for the study.

If you have any questions about the research study, please contact the research fellow for the IMPROVE trial – Dr Lexy Newbold at a.newbold@exeter.ac.uk.
