Evaluating Be Mindful on a non-clinical sample
A research study using a randomized waitlist control trial design, conducted by the University of Surrey, School of Psychology evaluated the effect of the Be Mindful digital program on depression, anxiety and perceived stress. Results showed that participants who completed the digital program reported significantly lower levels of perceived stress, depression and anxiety. Be Mindful program completers enjoyed a 63% decrease in depression, a 58% reduction in anxiety and a 40% reduction in perceived stress, and these effects were maintained at the 3- & 6-month follow-up.
REDUCTION IN ANXIETY
These findings strongly support the effectiveness of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) as delivered through the Be Mindful online course, and the outcomes rival those of studies which employed a group face-to-face mindfulness-based intervention. This seminal research study was published in the Journal ‘Mindfulness’ in May 2018.
