Human Contact Is the Best Help for Depression, Not Computer Programs


Recent research found that online programs were no more effective in treating depression than the usual care patients receive from a primary care physician.

691 depressed patients from 83 physician practices across England took part in the 4-month study. One-third of them received regular treatment from a primary care doctor, the other two-thirds received usual care from a physician plus an online CBT program.

"Supported cCBT does not substantially improve depression outcomes compared with usual GP [general practitioner] care alone," the researchers say.
