Course Description: Although physical activity has been effective at treating depression and depression relapse, promoting physical exercise among people with depression can often be challenging. Thus, interventions informed by theories and evidence are warranted to help people with depression be more active. The present study utilizes a web-based intervention called eMotion, which combines physical activity promotion with behavioral activation for people living in the community with symptoms of depression. The present study aimed to assess the feasibility and acceptability of eMotion for people in the community with symptoms of depression and to explore outcomes of the intervention as compared to a control group. The results of the study demonstrated that it is feasible to deliver the eMotion interventions to individuals who are inactive and have symptoms of depression.
