- Outcome Summary:
One trial (1) has been conducted (N=130) looking at the efficacy on the Mood Enhancer Diabetes program compared to an active control group who received an online psychoeducation module. Participants were adults with depressive symptoms (CES-D>=23) and type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The intervention group saw significantly better reduction in depressive symptoms d=0.89 (ITT). Additionally, those with a likely diagnosis of major depressive order benefitted more than those with less severe symptoms. At 6 month follow up the intervention group maintained significantly better reductions in symptoms compared to controls with d=0.83.
