Psychological therapies help many people but they don’t work for everyone. We want to identify factors that predict response to psychological therapy and will help in identifying which treatments might work best for different people.
We will test whether information provided by patients at the start of treatment, such as age, gender, severity of illness and medication use are useful in predicting whether patients get better after therapy. We will also test if genetic factors predict whether someone is more or less likely to get better after therapy.
This study will involve completion of questionnaires, giving a saliva sample, and access to your medical records to find out about your treatment through the Talking Therapies Service.
You do not have to take part in all parts of the study if you do not wish to. You can stop taking part at any time. Taking part or not will not affect your participation in the EDRR.
