Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common chronic endocrine condition associated with high levels of comorbid depression and anxiety. Patients often have unmet support needs that adversely impact wellbeing. We conducted a pilot study of a novel, digital, self-management, peer support programme for PCOS. The programme had been co-created with patients, health professionals and a patient organisation (Verity), and designed using the antecedent-target-measure approach. The intervention was based on positive psychology, compassion, hope, gratitude and personal strengths. It was delivered by peer facilitators, who themselves had PCOS.
