This study trained non-experts to deliver a structured low-intensity depression program.
This project seeks to expand access to depression care. We trained undergraduate students in Patient Activation, a low-intensity, evidence-informed behavioral program for mild-to-moderate depressive symptoms. Select students served as “coaches” to deliver Patient Activation with community-dwelling adults with depression.
Preliminary data were presented in a symposium at the 2020 Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) virtual conference.
