What does it mean to feel less depressed?
A qualitative study - January 2019
Depression in adolescents and young adults is a major mental health condition that requires attention. It requires appropriate interventions given the potentially negative consequences related to interruption in the development process, interpersonal conflicts, academic underperformance, low self-esteem, and increased risk of suicide. The purpose of this qualitative inquiry was to supplement the pilot clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT00985686) of an 8-week e-mental health intervention, the LEAP Project (re-named BreathingRoomTM), for youth with depression, through an exploration of the participants' experiences and perspectives regarding the impact of the intervention in relation to their depression.
