Beating the Blues to be utilized in US Army research project

Beating the Blues has been chosen by the US Army to be one of the core treatment options to be offered within a research study into the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder ("PTSD") and depression in the US military health system.

The trial, entitled STEPS UP, will be led by Colonel Charles Engel, MD, MPH of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and Deployment Health Clinical Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center ("WRNMMC") (formerly Walter Reed Army Medical Center) and partnering investigators Dr. Lisa Jaycox from RAND Corporation and Dr. Robert Bray from RTI International. Researchers from VA Boston Healthcare System, Boston University, and the University of Washington will also be collaborating.

John Smith, Chief Operating Officer at U² Interactive said "We are proud to be offering our support to this important research project and delighted that researchers from the US Department of Defense have chosen to use Beating the Blues. We see this as a great opportunity to demonstrate the value that computer delivered therapy can bring to healthcare provision."
