Research Opportunities

Research Groups:

  • Participants must commit to 90–120 minute group meetings once per week for 14 weeks, as well as 3 weekly exercise sessions (scheduled at a time and location convenient for you).
  • As it is a research trial, data is collected.  Thus, we ask that participants fill out forms each week tracking their symptoms and progress through the elements. 
  • Although we feel TLC is a program that would benefit a wide range of symptom profiles, we are currently only accepting participants suffering from clinical depression.  Those with mania, bipolar disorder, or have a current substance abuse problem are not eligible for the research study at this time.  If you have not currently been diagnosed with depression or are not sure if you qualify, we invite you to call and we can discuss your symptoms and your potential eligibility.
  • The treatment is completely FREE!
  • We provide all the necessary elements to complete the TLC program, including the Omega-3 supplements, light boxes, and exercise consultants to assist with working out.  
  • You do not need to stop any current ongoing treatments (e.g. medications or therapy) to participate.
