The study team would like to see whether giving personal feedback to people with depression, or low mood, can help them to get better more quickly.

The REDUCE Study aims to help people on long-term antidepressants reduce the dose of their antidepressant one step at a time, over some weeks or months, and eventually stop taking it altogether if appropriate. This would be led and supported by your GP (or nurse prescriber), and you would have follow-up appointments for support and monitoring for any withdrawal symptoms or recurrence of depression.
