Information about talking therapies.
MoodGYM is an internet-based therapy program designed to prevent depression in young people. It consists of five modules, a workbook and some interactive extras, including an interactive game. It includes assessments of anxiety and depression, 'warpy' thinking, life-event stress, parental relationships, and pleasant event scheduling. Although it is intended for young people, people who are older may find it helpful. Blue Pages (http://bluepages.anu.edu.au/home/) evaluated MoodGYM in a randomized controlled trial which showed that it was effective in reducing symptoms of depression in a community sample (see Christensen H, Griffiths KM, Jorm AF. Delivering depression interventions using the Internet: positive results from a large randomised controlled trial. British Medical Journal 2004, 328:265, doi:10.1136/bmj.37945.566632.EE).
