Volume 1 of this thesis is presented in three parts. Part 1 is a review of outcome studies on text-based guided self-help for depression and anxiety in primary care, specifically focusing on satisfaction, adherence and attrition. Part 2 is a qualitative interview study examining the views and experiences of 13 people (plus two more who gave details via email) who attended a guided self-help service and did not engage or did not benefit. Part 3 is a critical appraisal of the research process, which considers some of the conceptual and methodological issues encountered, before concluding with a discussion of personal reflections on the impact of the research on the participants and researcher.
