Organized Self-Management Support Services for Chronic Depression

2014-08-27 03:13:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose is to test the effectiveness of an organized care program for chronic or recurrent depression. Using a two-arm design, the investigators will randomly assign 300 participants with chronic or recurrent depression to one of two conditions: continued usual care (UC); or an 18-month organized treatment program focused on outreach and engagement, including a weekly group self-management training program, monthly visits with a psychotherapist (in-person or by telephone), and optional one-on-one visits with a peer support specialist. All intervention components are intended as adjuncts to any existing depression treatment (usually antidepressant medication) provided by participants' regular providers.
