Depression affects about one third of stroke survivors. The Stroke Association is a partner in the Depression: Asking the Right Questions project, which shared its final results in a report launched yesterday.

The report is the outcome of an extensive two-year consultation, which involved over 3,000 people affected by depression.  Participant responses were systematically analysed by researchers at Swansea University and prioritised by their peers. 

The report sets out the top 10 priorities for depression research, as agreed by people affected by the condition and healthcare professionals.

To find out more, including how to download a full copy of the report, visit the Depression: Asking the Right Questions website.
