Mindfulness & Depression

Added on May 22, 2011

Did you know that if you’ve had a major depressive illness at some time in your life your risk of relapse may be as high as 80%?

The good news is that studies now show that  learning Mindfulness can be as effect against relapse as medication.

This is great news!  Not only does this mean that Mindfulness is a great tool for  people with a history of depression; it also suggests that if you’re suffering from depression, learning Mindfulness might help resolve depressive symptoms faster. And if you’re not, and have never suffered from depression, Mindfulness may help to maintain your positive mental health.
