dc.description.abstract Background: There are clear advantages to internet-delivered interventions for depression. Users' perspectives on the acceptability, satisfaction, and efficacy of an internet-delivered treatment for depression can inform future developments in the area. Methods: Respondents (n = 281) were participants in an 8 week supported internet-delivered Cognitive Behaviour Therapy treatment for depressive symptoms. Self-report online questionnaires gathered quantitative and qualitative data on the user experience. Principle findings: Most respondents were satisfied with the programme (n = 191), felt supported (n = 203), reported positive gains and impact resulting from use of the programme, and perceived these to be likely to be lasting effects (n=149). Flexibility and accessibility were themost liked aspects. A small number of respondents felt their needs were not met by the intervention (n=64); for this group suggestions for improvements centred on the programme's structure and how supporter feedback is delivered. Conclusion: Results will deepen the understanding of users' experience and inform the development and implementation of evidence-based internet-delivered interventions. en_US
