Insomnia and depression - a SHUTi trial down under

December 6, 2016

Earlier this year, colleagues in Australia published an article in the Lancet Psychiatry (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2215036615005362) in which over 1000 participants across Australia with insomnia and at risk for depression were randomized to SHUTi and a placebo control.  The findings were fascinating.  This BBC clip goes into detail about the study and interviews Dr. Christensen about it.  Starts about the 10 min mark.
