The aim is to apply an exercise program to study symptomatic and physical changes, as well as to evaluate the improvement in functionality in a resistant depression unit. Sample: 20 patients with the resistant major depressive disorder who will undergo an exercise program. Before and after 12 weeks of intervention, the participants will be assessed with clinical, physical, physiological, biochemical, and functional variables. During 3 months the exercise program will be implemented 2 days per week. It is expected to find an improvement in mood and functionality, as well as changes in physical areas such as blood pressure or body mass index, which are considered predictive factors of cardiovascular disease.
The study will apply state of the art radiology through advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to investigate structural and functional brain effects of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS).
Utilization of therapist Assisted internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy (TAiCBT) for treating depression and anxiety disorders in stepped-care models, such as the UK's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) and the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program (SPP), is a potential solution for addressing the treatment gap in mental health. Investigators propose to investigate the effectiveness of Beacon TAiCBT for Depression to demonstrate the potential value of TAiCBT in a stepped care model. Investigators propose to conduct a 12-week pragmatic randomized controlled trial with a 1:1 (iCBT intervention: waiting-list) allocation, for participants referred to the Anxiety and Mood, Prompt Anxiety and Mood, and Trauma Programs at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences and on a waiting-list to receive clinical service. The primary outcome measures will be the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) definitions of Recovery, Reliable Improvement, and Reliable Recovery which are derived using the PHQ-9 and GAD-7 . The PHQ-9 (Depression), GAD-7 (anxiety) and WSAS (functional impairment) will be used as secondary outcome measures for all participants. Over the course of the study, 200 participants will be randomized (iCBT, 100; waiting-list, 100). Statistical analyses will include intention-to-treat analyses to test the interaction effects for the primary outcome measures at discharge/12-weeks and 3, and 12 months post-treatment. It is predicted that participants in the treatment condition will show significantly reduced symptoms of depression related to the waitlist control. It is predicted that this will be maintained through follow up.
Laughter yoga sessions, stretches and stretches, songs, clapping and body It starts with light warm-up techniques that include movements. These are to break down all kinds of inhibitions and It is aimed at developing the feelings of childlike play. breathing exercises lungs they are ready to laugh and are combined with the following series of laughing exercises. LY In order to provide group dynamics in therapy, the group should consist of at least 5-12 people. provided. Real laughter is often experienced during laughter meditation; it's contagious and may trigger laughter in other people in the group, hence the group can establish greater connections with its members. Laughter yoga sessions are always held at the same time and in the same place to encourage the participation of individuals. has been done.
This is a single center phase I / II clinical trial. Randomized, blind and positive drug parallel control were used to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of dental pulp mesenchymal cell injection in the treatment of depression 8 weeks after administration
In this one-armed study the feasibility and effectiveness of a home treatment with transcranial direct currect stimulation in depression will be investigated.
Participants will be asked to fill out an online questionnaire about their demographics information and all 42 items from the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS-42). A series of machine learning techniques will be applied to the dataset to develop a shortened assessment using the most important demographics and DASS-42 items from the original questionnaire, to predict depression levels indicated by DASS-42.
The MI-CARE trial tests 12 months of telephone-based nurse care management for patients with depressive symptoms who take or have taken opioids at some time. The study tests whether offering nurse support to the patient and their primary care team that addresses these things and related issues can improve patients' health and well-being. Eligible subjects are identified automatically using health system data and randomly assigned 50:50 to either a no-contact usual care arm or to the arm offered the MI-CARE program.
The aim of this study is to test the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of methods for delivering mental health support when real-time communication is not possible (e.g. on long duration space flights where communication lags of up to 45 minutes are anticipated). The investigators hypothesize that the two enhanced treatment conditions (i.e., those with therapist support) will outperform the online self-management program without support. The investigators also predict that outcomes for the two enhanced conditions will be comparable to those reported in the literature for in-person psychotherapy programs.
The study aims to evaluate the impact of repeated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) on underlying neuronal mechanisms of adults suffering from major depression disorder (MDD). Short- and long-term effects are assessed by High-Resolution electroencephalography (HR-EEG) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) records, experimental tasks and self-rated scales.
