Brief description Vitamin D is commonly deficient in Western populations, more so in the winter months and in the elderly. A link between depression and vitamin D insufficiency may exist. This study aims to see if vitamin-D supplementation is a practical health intervention for depressive symptoms and may define a public health strategy. In this study participants receive a dose of vitamin D3 or placebo annually for three years. Self-rated psychiatric assessments are administered.
