In my reality, this story falls into the category of "dog bites man," but in a country where 80-odd per cent of depressives routinely get prescribed drugs, I suppose it's revolutionary. I'll see if I can find the paper:
"Research conducted by The City University in London has revealed that patients with depression can experience considerable relief by having one hour per day of therapy online. Furthermore over 3 out of every 5 patients are able to cease treatment after only eight sessions."

Not that this will devastate antidepressant sales if it catches on, or anything. Because that would be awful.
