BASIL

Supporting adults with low mood and loneliness using Behavioural Activation in Social IsoLation.

Behavioural Activation (BA) is a brief psychological intervention which has been shown to reduce or prevent depression in high risk groups. The intervention has been designed to be delivered over the telephone by a range of health and social care professionals (‘BASIL support workers’) and involves supporting older adults to stay active, basic monitoring of depressive symptoms, and facilitating communication with the older adults’ healthcare team as part of a collaborative care framework.
