Help influence research on depression

Help influence research on depression

I am the project manager for a depression research priority setting partnership called Depression: Asking the Right Questions.

In 2014, we launched a survey that more than 3,000 people responded to telling us what questions they had about depression that they felt needed to be researched. We are now asking people to help shortlist these questions so that we can identify the most important ones. We'll then share these with funders, policy-makers and service providers in order to help get these priorities heard.

Can you help us by taking the survey to shortlist the questions about treating depression? There are only a few days left to take it - it closes on Friday, 14th August 2015. But there will be another survey in a few weeks about questions that have to do with cause, stigma and education.

Please visit to take the survey and find out more.

Thank you for your support!

Believe I have taken the survey. The survey totally ignores the influence of body posture and muscular behaviour on depression. This is not surprising as many researches are trained to report on things that can be measured and totally ignore things of importance that cannot be measured.

The survey has also ignored the brain as a working engineering system. Working engineering systems have to continually make compromises in order to: keep heat produced below a safe limit, remove waste products, supply nutrient and keep all communication pathways synchronised. No psychiatrist I have ever met understands engineering systems. A lot psychologists do not understand engineering systems either. The result many people are suffering injury from teh people who are supposed to help them. Not only this, the injuries are very effectively covered up by the defence the legal system has to experts.
