Assessing the benefits of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for call centre employees

Focusing on quality, accessibility and confidentiality in supporting community mental health







Recognising the needs of its members, the library sought to establish a wellbeing initiative and realised that digital channels could provide an easy way to extend their services and support mental health in the community.

Following a quick setup, in February 2021 Stillwater Public Library launched Be Mindful as part of the library's stress-reduction health literacy efforts. While there were important learnings from the rollout, the key takeaway was that every lesson viewed can be life-enhancing and for those who followed the program through to completion, the statistical results have been extremely positive.
