Potential Benefits of Participating in Depression Research
People who join depression
research studies may be among the first to benefit if a new approach is effective. However, even if people in a clinical trial do not benefit directly, they still make an important contribution by helping doctors learn more about depression and how to control it. Although clinical trials may pose some risks, researchers do all they can to protect their patients. If you are interested in research trials that may benefit you, talk with your healthcare provider.
