Depression treatment for British Pakistani women developed

  • 1 Comment

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.

  • Why just British Pakistani women? Why not every British woman? Isn't this against the whole 'equality and diversity' ethos? Are Pakistani women different from every other human being that they respond to meds differently? Okay I'm being sarky, but I'm a bit fed up with these pointless, lazy non articles in NT.
