Treatment Interrupts Depression Early (TIDE)

Project Overview


Though many people experience depression for the first time early in life, with the first incidence most often occurring between the ages of 12 and 25, the majority of research in the field of depression treatment focuses on adults. Effective treatment early on in a person's life can be instrumental in setting up young people for success in all spheres of their lives. Learn about the TIDE project, which aims to determine what factors affect the likelihood of a person getting better with an antidepressant versus psychological therapy. 


People between the ages of 12-25 who are experiencing depression (specifically, major depressive disorder) for the first time with onset within the past year are likely to be eligible for TIDE. 

If you think you may be eligible or have any questions about your eligibility, please get in touch with the research team via the TIDE website or the email below.
