Online mindfulness for stroke survivors and caregivers

Tue 02 Apr 2019

Study opportunity for stroke survivors and family caregivers with stress, anxiety, or depression who are willing to learn mindfulness together (i.e. partnership) using an online course.

What: Participants will learn mindfulness together using the Be Mindful course (

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.
