The iTreAD project is a randomized controlled trial that has been designed to help us find out what kinds of programs work best for people aged 18-30 years who experience low mood and binge drink. The project is aiming to test the effectiveness of internet delivered psychological treatment for improving depression and binge drinking with the addition of a social networking component. If you are interested, you can complete an online screening questionnaire to determine whether iTreAD is right for you.
