About the project

Low mood and depression affects as many as 1 in 2 people with MS at some point in their illness. This is often treatable but can be missed during doctors’ appointments. PHQiMS is a study that tests whether a short questionnaire, PHQ-9, could help to measure and monitor mood in people with MS.
