Our research team at the UCSF Late Life Depression Program has begun recruiting participants for an important new study at the University of California, San Francisco Parnassus campus and SF VA Medical Center.  The Psychotherapy Outcomes Study is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and is investigating how symptoms of depression impact brain health in older adults.

Qualifying volunteers will receive up to $265 in financial compensation for their participation.

Participants may be eligible if they are:

  • Currently experiencing symptoms of depression
  • No antidepressant or psychotherapy treatment within the past 4 weeks
  • Aged 65 or older, and in good general health
  • English speaking
  • Willing to participate in cognitive assessments
