you’ll be part of a research team that is working to advance scientific
knowledge and discovery.

The following studies are looking for volunteers:
Engage Project for Patients and Therapists
The Engage Project is
looking for people 60 years old and older who are struggling with low mood,
concentration or energy. The project also needs therapists who are willing
to learn new therapies for treating depression in older adults. The study is
testing an easier, faster way of delivering a proven treatment for depression
as well as testing a new therapy called Engage. Call 206.616.2129, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Engage
study recruitment page for more information.
Games to Overcome Late Life Depression
GOLD is testing the effectiveness of a
therapeutic video game called Evo on treatment-resistant depression that causes
impairment in concentration, focus and decision-making. In a small sample, we
have found that older adults with depression who do not respond to
antidepressants have significant improvement in mood and cognitive function
after four weeks of playing Evo, improvement as good as that found with
traditional therapy. If you are interested in participating in this study
please visit our study
recruitment page, call 206.616.2129 or email email@example.com.
Funded by NIMH.

Are you drinking to numb the pain? Would you

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to examine two different types of talk
therapies. Our experienced therapists provide counseling at no cost. Call
