Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Depression and Anxiety for African American/Black and Hispanic/Lat

Have you been feeling down, blue, depressed, nervous, worried, or not enjoying things as much as you used to? A study being carried out in the Psychology Department at Texas Tech University offers free psychological treatment for African American/Black and Hispanic/Latino(a) adults who are feeling both depressed and worried. Treatment is free and involves 15 weeks of cognitive-behavior therapy; a treatment that research shows is helpful for these types of problems.

To participate, you must be 18 years or older, African American/Black or Hispanic/Latino(a), and read and speak English. You also must be willing to take about five minutes to do a short questionnaire about you three to four times a day for 3 weeks before treatment, once during treatment, and at end of treatment.
