Combining physical activity promotion with behavioural activation as a treatment for depression

Physical activity is a potentially effective treatment for depression (Cooney et al., 2013) and may also help to prevent depressive relapse (Babyak et al., 2000). 

However, trials often recruit highly motivated individuals limiting the transferability of this evidence to depression in the real world (Nyström, Neely, & Hassmén, 2015). More evidence on scalable, community-based interventions which promote physical activity in people with depression (who are not already active) are therefore needed.

This talk by Jeffrey Lambert aims to (1) describe the development of a web-based intervention based on behavioural activation and physical activity promotion for people with depression (eMotion) and (2) report the findings of a recent pilot randomised controlled trial.
