dc.descriptionDepression is a high prevalence disorder, displaying high rates of lifetime incidence, early age onset, high chronicity, and role impairment. In Ireland 12-month prevalence of depression has been reported to be 10.3%. A large percentage of affe cted individuals have no medical diagnosis nor seek treatment. Cognitive Behavior Therapy ( CBT) has established itself as an option for the treatment of depression. Many Irish adults with depression find it difficult to access evidence-based CBT, this is due to several factors, like stigma and costs. However, systematic factors including the shortage of trained professionals and the relative underdevelopment of services also make access difficult. Stepped-care can increase access to evidence-based CBT. One option is tailored internet- delivered treatment programs. Preliminary research from Ireland needs now to include large- scale studies on effectiveness. Thus the current studyseeks to examine the potential of an internet-delivered low-intensity treatment for symptoms of depression in an Irish adult community sample.en_GB
