2022 – Flinders University

Researchers: Lead Investigator – Dr Ryan Balzan

Priority Area: Depression

Overview: MCT-Silver is an innovative, easily implemented group intervention for older people with depression. Across eight entertaining and interactive multimedia modules, and with content specifically developed for older adults, MCT-Silver uniquely targets the unhelpful thinking styles that can contribute to the development and maintenance of depression. The proposed project will be one of the first trials worldwide to pilot the MCT-Silver intervention among older adults with depression in a community sample.
