  Purpose
The investigators want to find out if their specially designed exercise programme will be more successful at helping women with depression to feel better than a basic programme will, by measuring the effect the programme has on mood, physical health, and social wellbeing. Their specially designed exercise programme will involve physical exertion at the participants' chosen level of intensity (how hard the body has to work during exercise), and will include motivational support. By contrast, the basic exercise programme will be at an intensity recommended by national guidelines, of the type that may be prescribed by a general practitioner (GP), and will include no extra motivational support.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Psychosocial support
Comprising 22 participants engaging in the experimental exercise programme, exercising with psychosocial support.
Behavioral: Psychosocial support exercise programme
The experimental arm will experience 12 sessions of intervention, at a rate of three sessions a week for four weeks, exercising in groups of ten women. Each session will comprise: fifteen minutes of psychosocial and motivational support, run by a qualified rehabilitation psychologist and overseen by a qualified health psychologist; a half hour preferred intensity exercise session run by a qualified sports physiotherapist. Participants preferred intensity (chosen exertion level) will be established using the Borg RPE scale (Borg G 1998).
Active Comparator: Prescribed exercise
Comprising 21 participants engaging in a programme of typical prescribed exercise.
Behavioral: Prescribed exercise
This group will experience 12 sessions of intervention, at a rate of three sessions a week for four weeks, exercising in groups of ten women. Each session will be an half hour exercise session, at a typically (GP) prescribed level, designed in accordance with national guidelines and run by a qualified sports physiotherapist.
