What: Participants will learn mindfulness together using the Be Mindful course (https://bemindful.co.uk/)
Where: Scotland and northern England
How long: The study will last eight weeks
Possible risks: Most people do not experience problems learning mindfulness. A small number of people report difficulties (e.g. agitation, anxiety, discomfort, and confusion). Mindfulness is not recommended if you have a history of major trauma or psychosis. Risks are less if you follow the guidance provided in the course and stop if you experience discomfort.
Possible benefits: Previous research found the course helped people reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Not everyone benefits from the course.
Expenses: The cost of the course will be covered by the research team. No travel required.
