To assess the cost-effectiveness of an occupational therapy-led lifestyle approach to treating panic disorder in primary care compared with routine general practitioner's (GP) care. The burden of mental health disorders is considerable. Cost-effective interventions are necessary to alleviate some of these burdens. Habitual lifestyle behaviours influence mood, although to date mainly single lifestyle factor trials have been conducted to examine the effects on anxiety.
