Depression Management in the Workplace


The Depression Management in the Workplace (DMW) Study collected all data from health benefit professionals who reported about their companies.  All items asking for proprietary or other sensitive information were removed during pilot testing.  The research team promised each participant that it would not release data about any individual company.

Data were collected from each participant at baseline, 12- and 24-month followup using computerized interviews.  Baseline data were divided into data collected before and after the presentation.  Copies of each instrument used in the study are available by clicking the links below.
