Help inform the future of treatment for youth depression and anxiety - clinician focus group

Help inform the future of treatment for youth depression and anxiety - clinician focus group

Four Orygen research teams are among a select number of teams worldwide commissioned by the UK-based Wellcome Trust to explore which interventions work best for young people with anxiety and depression.

Each Orygen research team will review the available evidence relating to their area of expertise, to analyse what is most effective in treating young people with anxiety and depression. In addition to young people with lived experience, some of the projects are also seeking the involvement of clinicians to provide input into the project in order to advance understanding of how the interventions work in practice.

One of the projects concerns treatments targeting rumination and worry that are know to be underlying drivers of depression and anxiety.

To help with the project, Orygen invites clinicians with experience providing psychological treatment for young people with depression and anxiety that have difficulties with rumination and/or worry to attend a 1-1.5 online focus group which will involve sharing your experiences providing psychological treatment for this client group.
