The diamond cohort study - long term outcomes of depressive
Grant number: 1002908 | Funding period: 2011 - 2016
Diamond began in 2005 to follow over 500 people with depressive symptoms to document and describe the nature and course of depression and its’ management over a decade of a participant’s life. Our findings will help us to understand the factors associated with depression recovery, relapse and persistence. We will inform clinical practice by developing a tool to assist GPs to identify those at risk of persistent and disabling depression, to enable better treatments.
