Experiences of older workers who have had depression

08 November 2018

We are seeking participants for a study investigating the experiences of older workers who have had depression.

Depression has been declared an epidemic across the entire working age groups. Older workers are more vulnerable due to the risk of involuntary work exclusion. Many quantitative studies have investigated the impact of depression, either across the entire working age groups or among older workers. However, to date, few qualitative studies have explored the issue among older workers.

Requirements

  • Male or Female
  • 50 years and above
  • Previous experience of depression
  • UK-based older worker
