BluePages Depression Information

About BluePages

BluePages™ provides information about depression for consumers

BluePages is produced by the the Australian National University. 

BluePages provides users with the highest quality scientific evidence on interventions for depression plus consumer perspective and understanding.

Highest quality evidence

BluePages maintains a high standard of information on interventions for depression through ongoing "systematic reviews". A systematic review involves a lengthy process of searching for all the scientific research on a specific intervention, and compiling and integrating the highest quality evidence. This is considered to be the most objective approach to evaluating different interventions.

See Scientific Evidence and The Content of BluePages.

Consumer understanding

The BluePages team is particularly sensitive to the issues facing sufferers of common mental disorders, with several team members having personally experienced depression or anxiety disorders themselves.
