COBRA (Cost and outcome of behavioural activation): a randomised controlled trial of behavioural activation versus cognitive behaviour therapy for depression

Depression kills more people in the UK through suicide than any other mental health problem.

We aim to investigate its effectiveness and potential economic advantages over CBT.
