This documentary explores people's experiences of living with longer-term depression, and how self-management approaches can empower individuals to take control of their mental well being. The film also gives a powerful insight into how service-user involvement throughout the IQuESTS project has helped shaped a new approach that better meets the needs of this group.
The IQuESTS Project, funded by the NIHR CLAHRC, aims to reduce levels of chronic, recurrent and relapsing depression in South Yorkshire through translating results from clinical trials of psychological treatments for depression to routine NHS conditions, improving self-management, and demonstrating a step change in the quality and effectiveness of NHS psychological services and therapies.
