Volunteers needed

Inga Robyn Witbooi, UWC student

I am a student from the University of the Western Cape currently doing my Master’s degree in Medical Biosciences.

My supervisors and I are conducting a study to investigate the effectiveness of
an adjunctive treatment for depression (Major Depressive Disorder).

We are recruiting people who have been diagnosed with depression and are currently on antidepressants.

Our study has been ethically approved.

People who are aged between 18 and 65 years old; have been diagnosed with depression; and are currently on at least one antidepressant medication, may be eligible to participate in the study.

The research is being conducted at the University of the Western Cape and the duration of the study is six months. Participants will be required to come for follow-up visits every three weeks.

The benefits of participation includes receiving study treatment, follow-up visits with a trained clinician, overall better mental health and participation in a ground-breaking innovative study.
