Despite the initial effectiveness of modern treatments, 52% to 85% of young people with depression will suffer repeated depressive episodes. The recurrence of youth depression makes it the greatest cause of disability during youth worldwide. The aim of this project is to assess the effectiveness of a novel mindfulness-based cognitive online social media intervention in preventing relapse in youth depression.
