Can online and smartphone therapies help treat depression an
Two new studies released this week have found success with alternative therapies for anxiety and depression with an online cognitive (CCBT), an Internet support group and a smartphone app. In preliminary findings released on Thursday, doctors from the University of Pittsburgh revealed that they had found that an online (CCBT) program either alone or when combined with Internet Support Groups (ISG) could be an effective treatment for anxiety and depression. For their study, the team recruited 704 depressed and anxious patients aged 18 to 75 and split them into three groups.
