The Talking Therapies Research Resource (TTRR), led by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Mental Health BioResource and researchers at King’s College London, is a project set up to support studies on depression and anxiety and talking therapy treatment.

Depression and anxiety are the most common mental health disorders worldwide. In the UK, 1 in 3 people will experience symptoms during their lifetime. The TTRR was set up to explore factors that predict response to talking therapies for anxiety and depression in order to identify which treatments might work best for different people.
