Depression is a common comorbidity for people living with epilepsy but is often under-diagnosed and under-treated. Depression is also associated with changes in how we access autobiographical memories - with a tendency to recall more negative memories when feeling down. We are investigating the utility of a self-directed therapeutic program aimed at improving mood through increasing flexibility in how we access autobiographical memories and balancing positive and negative memories more effectively. This program (the MemFlex program) has shown efficacy for people in the general population and we are seeking to explore more specifically it's possible benefits for people living with epilepsy.
