You are invited to participate in an online study conducted by The University of Melbourne, Australia. We are researching whether email messages can help prevent depression in those who are at risk.
As a participant, you will receive Mood memo emails with expert coping advice and information about depression directly to your email inbox every few days for 6 weeks. The aim is to improve depression symptoms and help prevent more severe depression.
The Mood Memos study is open for participants 18+ years until November 2010. The study is ideal for those who have some symptoms of depression but aren’t being treated, and want to know more about depression and how to help themselves feel better. Participation is confidential and can be anonymous.
The study is funded by the NHMRC and the Sidney Myer Fund, and has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee at The University of Melbourne. The study forms part of a PhD project by Amy Morgan, and is supervised by Professor Tony Jorm and Professor Andrew Mackinnon.
