A treatment programme that can reduce depression in British Pakistani women has been developed by a team of researchers from Manchester University.
The 10 week programme included activities and educational sessions, which were culturally tailored.
Researchers recruited 123 British Pakistani women to take part in the study, some taking part in the programme and some receiving antidepressants. After follow-up at three and nine months, the researchers found a greater improvement in depression scores for the programme group than the antidepressant group.
