‘MQ: Transforming Mental Health’ are a new charity formed to support much-needed research into mental health. Their Treating Depression Survey is now live and the closing date to complete it is 11:59pm on 14th August 2015.
The Treating Depression Survey is the next stage of the Depression: Asking the Right Questions project, which the Stroke Association supported last year.
Three thousand people submitted a total of 10,000 questions to the original survey, covering what they think needs to be addressed by depression research.
Now the Depression: Asking the Right Questions project moves on to the next important phase in turning these questions into top priorities. During this stage, MQ are shortlisting the questions from their original survey which are concerned with Treating Depression.
Depression affects about one third of stroke survivors and the Stroke Association would again like to support MQ in promoting this important survey. We would like people with depression, their friends, families and clinicians to take part in the survey. The result will be a ‘top priority’ list of questions to research. MQ will promote the list to people who fund depression research – governments, universities and charities.
