What is Beating the Blues®?

Beating the Blues® is an online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) treatment programme for depression and/or anxiety in primary care.

It brings all the benefits of CBT directly to your patients by the use of computer and multi-media technology. This online CBT is sometimes also known as computerised CBT.

Beating the Blues® has been clinically proven in independent randomised controlled trials (RCTs). It has been recommended for use in the National Health Service, UK by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Implementation of the programme in New Zealand is consistent with Evidence-Based Best Practice Guidelines.

This programme was jointly designed and developed by Dr Judy Proudfoot and her team at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London and Ultrasis plc.

Beating the Blues® is now available in New Zealand funded by the Ministry of Health. Free access to the online programme is managed by GPs through ManageMyHealth™, with accredited trainers offering training to practices in their area. Please contact your PHO for details of training in your area.
