Welcome to the Behaviour Activation site

The aim of Behavioural Activation is to get people with depression involved in positive activities and to engage in everyday tasks they may have been avoiding. Therapists work collaboratively with people to help them make real and sustained life change. NES provides resources for staff working with:

  • Adults with depression - Martell's Behavioural Activation for Depression (BAD), Hopko & Lejuez's Behavioural Treatment for Depression (BATD-R), and a group format for Martell's Behavioural Activation for Depression resources
  • Children with depression
  • People with intellectual disabilities and depression - Andrew Jahoda's Talking Therapies for Depression: Beat It
  • [Women with peri-natal depression]
