The Cochrane Collaboration Depression, Anxiety and Neurosis Review Group (CCDAN) is responsible for preparing Cochrane reviews that cover a broad range of mental health issues. The principle conditions that we cover are:

  • Mood disorders;
  • Anxiety disorders;
  • Somatoform disorders; and
  • Eating disorders. 

CCDAN's scope also includes clinically significant problems such as deliberate self-harm, and suicide attempt. For full details see Scope section.

The group was established in 1996 and is currently co-ordinated by an editorial base located within the Centre for Academic Mental Health at the University of Bristol, UK. Meet the team.

You should be able to find all the information you need about our group on this website, but if not please do not hesitate to contact us.

*NEW*  Setting priorities for bipolar research *NEW*

A new UK-wide survey about bipolar has been launched by a partnership of mental health groups, supported by the Cochrane Depression, Anxiety, and Neurosis Group.

The survey gives individuals, families, clinicians and other professionals the opportunity to influence research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and care of bipolar.

The survey has been developed by the James Lind Alliance Bipolar Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) with partners including charities, research funders, clinicians and service users. 

The survey will be open until late November and can be accessed at www.ouh.nhs.uk/bipolar.  The results of the survey are planned for release in July 2015.
