Research Projects (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

YoDA-F (Youth Depression Alleviation – Fish Oil)

headspace Midland is currently able to offer eligible young people the chance to participate in an exciting research study conducted in collaboration with Telethon Kids Institute. There is growing evidence that long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids ("fish oil") have a positive effect on mental health, including depression, however, more trials are needed in young people with depression symptoms.  As an alternative to anti-depressant medication, YoDA-F is investigating whether a specific high strength of fish oil alongside psychological therapy is helpful in treating depressive symptoms.

The trial involves young people with moderate depressive symptoms taking medication (either fish oil or placebo) combined with cognitive therapy for a period of 12 weeks. Young people are recruited through headspace Midland. The trial is also being conducted in Melbourne and Sydney.

For more information about the research program, please talk to your Youth Axis Worker or you can contact Madeleine Rayner or Zahra Hilton, our research assistants, at madeleine.rayner@telethonkids.org.au or Zahra.hilton@telethonkids.org.au
