About the study
REBOOT is a study set up to see whether an online peer support website called Big White Wall is more or less effective in helping people if they are experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
We would like to recruit over 2000 people from the whole of Nottinghamshire who have symptoms of anxiety and depression to help with this research.
Why take part?
If you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and/or depression, such as feeling low, being uninterested in doing your usual activities, worrying a lot, having sleeping difficulties you may find that the information on the websites you access whilst participating in the study could be helpful. It might also help you to understand how you are feeling and how your mood may change over time.
This study is being run by CLAHRC-EM (Collaboration for Leadership and Applied Health Research and Care – East Midlands) which is funded by the NHS to put research into practice as soon as possible if the findings are shown to be beneficial. This means that if you take part you may be helping us to help others in just a few years’ time.
There are things that we'd check to make sure that you are suitable for the study.
How long will the study last?
You will be asked to remain in the study for 6 months and complete questionnaires about your mood at the start, 3, 6, 12 and 26 weeks.
Participants who complete their research measures at every stage will be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of high street vouchers, from which there will be 30 winners.
Whilst we do not pay people to participate we hope that their involvement will enable them to access helpful information, record changes in their mood to help them understand how they are feeling as well feeling positive about taking part in research.
