    This is a letter Adrian Baldwin and I just had published in Evidence Based Mental Health in reply.

    Unfortunately it is not open access

    It is about the recovery definition used in the PACE Trial.

    Friedberg & Adamowicz say that the recovery criteria in the PACE Trial were similar to those used by Deale et al (2001) in an earlier CBT trial, echoing PACE Trial authors claimed. We disagree pointing out how they are different.

    We then also say the use of a threshold of SF-36 PF of 60 or more to define recovery is inappropriate, including by quoting population data.
