The Nu-V3 Clinical Study is a prospective, single-arm, open-label, multi-center study using the Nu-V3 cranial nerve stimulation treatment device in patients with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and/or sleeplessness. For this Phase II study, a total of 100-200 patients at multiple centers will be registered for study participation. Study participants are those who have signed the informed consent form, met the inclusion and exclusion criteria, and are enrolled in the study at one of multiple sites. Enrolled participants are stratified based on their chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and/or sleeplessness symptom presentation at baseline and treated with the Nu-V3 device for 24 weeks. Interim analysis of reported data will be based on baseline stratifications and conducted at 6, 12, 18, and 24 weeks during this time. The participant will be evaluated after the initial 12-week treatment period to assess for further therapeutic need. Upon having three consecutive weeks of mean symptom reduction of ≥70% via patient reported numerical scales, the participant will continue as described in the study assessments table, but without device therapy. Then if the participant's primary symptom score increases at any time by ≥20%, they may again continue device therapy until week 24.
The purpose of this study is to find out if vortioxetine is better than placebo (sugar pills) in preventing depression in children who improved when treated with vortioxetine.
The overall objective of this study is to develop a feasible and acceptable mental health app which delivers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for depressed patients in the Dominican Republic. This proposal meets the research objectives of NIMH in delivering mental health care to populations with low literacy, and supporting health care systems in monitoring and improving the quality of mental health. In the proposed study, the investigators will upgrade, implement, and evaluate a depression treatment app and assess trained facilitators' capacity in managing participants' depression symptoms using the app. The investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trial (RCT) among 120 participants who screen positive for mild to moderate depression or anxiety on the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) or GAD- 7 via a university-based Covid mental health hotline. The app, El Buen Consejo Móvil (EBCM), will be downloaded to the participants' own Android phone. Participants will be randomized to receive the EBCM app with the functionality to connect individuals to one another via a facilitator-guided chat room (ECBM-G; n= 60) or to receive the same contents as an individualized facilitator-guided CBT program without the group functionality (ECBM-I; n=60). Recruitment and mixed-methods data collection will be conducted by phone, given current circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Process outcomes will be evaluated for the trained facilitators. The primary outcomes for app users will be acceptability of the app and perceptions of social interactivity for those randomized to the group condition. Validated questionnaires will be administered to measure perceived emotional support, loneliness, and interactivity. Level of adherence and effectiveness, the secondary outcomes, will be assessed by frequency of interaction with the app, completion of treatment for either treatment modality, and change in depressive symptoms. The investigators hypothesize that the use of the app for guided self-help can be enhanced through group interaction. EBCM can result in increased access to care in low-income community settings where patients are not currently receiving treatment due to logistical barriers and the stigma of seeking care in a mental health care setting.
Youth depression is a matter of concern worldwide. It affects an important part of the young population around the world and its consequences both physically and mentally make this issue an important research field for psychologists and other health related professionals (Zuckerbrot, Cheung, Jensen, Stein & Laraque, 2018). Two of the biggest challenges that clinicians and researchers face when dealing with youth depression are adherence and the establishment of a therapeutic alliance (TA; Nock & Ferriter, 2005). While several treatments are available to relief depressive symptomatology in youths, a significant number do not access them for a variety of reasons (DiMatteo, Lepper & Corgan, 2000). In the last decades, substantial research has been conducted on how youths and the general population perceive therapy, and different methods have been developed to assess clients and therapists in order to improve outcomes and other aspects of the psychotherapy process, such as feedback tools and real-time measurements like Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) (Shiffman, et al., 2008). With the aid of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) and eMental Health strategies, feedback and assessment tools can be presented in a friendly manner, providing a novel way to possibly improving adherence rates and TA scores. This study aims to develop and test the effectiveness of an Ecological Momentary Assessment mobile application to improve initial adherence and TA in psychotherapy for youths with depression. The hypotheses for this trial are: 1. Applying an EMA baseline screening application one week before the beginning of treatment for youth depression will significantly improve the TA. 2. Applying an EMA baseline screening application one week before the beginning of treatment for youth depression will significantly improve initial adherence.
This project's overall goal is to test the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of two coach-assisted, computer-based, cognitive- behavioral therapy (C-CBT) interventions in treating depression and anxiety in adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. The two coach-assisted interventions will be compared to the standard C-CBT intervention.
Participants in the intervention study will be 120 caregivers with guilt feelings linked with care and high levels of emotional distress (anxiety and/or depression), randomly allocated to the intervention conditions: intervention group and cognitive-behavioral comparison group. The intervention will be provided in a group setting and will consist in 8 sessions plus 3 booster sessions. The effect of the intervention on guilt feelings, depressive and anxious symptomatology, and biomarkers of cardiovascular risk will be assessed after the intervention and at follow-ups at 6 months.

The primary purpose of this research is to gather scientific information about how different people's brains work when they look at different types of pictures. This will help to improve the investigators' understanding of the way the brain works for people who are depressed or anxious, and this knowledge could help lead to better diagnosis and treatment.
This research study is designed to investigate the effects of a brief psychological intervention for improving depressed mood in older individuals (65 years and older) in isolation during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The treatment is delivered by telephone and consists of four weekly individual sessions. Two therapeutic methods are used in combination during this intervention: Behavioral activation (BA) and Mental Imagery (MI). BA involves identifying and scheduling enjoyable and meaningful activities to improve mood and reduce social isolation. To enhance BA efficacy and adherence, MI is paired with BA as MI is known to activate emotion and motivation. The MI intervention in this study involves having participants imagine, in vivid sensory detail, engaging in some of the activities that are scheduled during BA. Approximately 154 individuals will participate in the study. Half of the participants will be randomised to start the intervention immediately, while the other half of the participants will be randomized to a control group receiving the intervention after 4 weeks. This procedure makes it possible to evaluate the effects of the treatment while not disadvantaging participants randomized to the control group. Participants will be asked to fill in questionnaires before, during (at the end of each intervention week), and after treatment (or waiting period for the control group). Questionnaires will also be sent 1-, 3- and 6 months after treatment to follow up on the results. A smaller group of participants (10-15) will be asked to participate in a more detailed interview about how they experienced the treatment.
The overarching aim of the proposed project is to conduct a pragmatic, quality improvement evaluation of the IntelliCare Platform for improving processes of care in the Rush Collaborative Care program, and improving patient population depression outcomes, to determine the long-term utility of IntelliCare for Rush.
