EQUITy: Enhancing the quality of psychological interventions delivered by telephone
The EQUITy programme is a £2.4 million research programme funded by the National Institute of Health Research’s Programme Grants for Applied Research funding stream. It aims to improve the way psychological therapies for depression and anxiety are delivered by telephone so that we can ensure that people receive the care that they need.
Depression and anxiety are common mental health problems that can cause substantial difficulties for people who experience them. The NHS has created an innovative psychological therapy service called Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT), to help people with these conditions. EQUITy is working closely with patients and professionals to ensure the work is acceptable to the people accessing IAPT services and those supporting patients.
If you would like to take part or would like further information about the programme you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Genetic Links to Anxiety & Depression
Exciting new opportunity to engage in anxiety/depression research
Depression and anxiety are common but complex disorders whose research needs very large sample sizes. The Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) study launches this September and aims to recruit >40,000 individuals. Anyone age 16 years or older who has experienced anxiety or depression during their lives can join this recontactable database to facilitate future research. Participants will also join a national Mental Health BioResource and contribute to the largest ever single study of anxiety and depression.
How can I take part?
All enrollment takes place online at our website, www.gladstudy.org.uk. An online animation explains the consent process with more detailed information in text format. Once you have provided consent and completed an online questionnaire you will be sent a saliva DNA sample kit to enable genetic studies.
We really hope you will join us in this important endeavour.
