Wellmind Health are pleased to announce a research study that has been published in the Journal mindfulness, demonstrating the effectiveness of their web-based Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy course (MBCT), Be Mindful.

A research study using a randomized waitlist control trial design, conducted by the University of Surrey, School of Psychology evaluated the effect of our Be Mindful course on depression, anxiety and perceived stress.

Results showed that participants who completed the online mindfulness course reported significantly lower levels of perceived stress, depression and anxiety. Be Mindful course 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.

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

The research findings evaluating the effectiveness of this MBCT course was published in the British Journal of Occupational Health Psychology on May 2nd 2018. Read the full article here.
