Depression Online Tool
A new online tool is helping people with depression improve their mood, change their thinking patterns and feel better over time. Developed by Greg Clarke, PhD, and colleagues at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research, MoodHelper is based on proven cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. The program is not meant to replace in-person therapy, but to be used along with therapy and medication. MoodHelper has already shown promise in clinical trials and is being offered to all state employees in Oregon.
