Mending Through Mindfulness - MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy)

What is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)?

MBCT helps reduce stress and anxiety and prevents relapses in those who suffer from depression. It combines the practice of mindfulness meditation with the practical skills of learning to interrupt thought patterns that lead to negative spirals in mood. Mindfulness is a non-judgmental way of paying attention in the present moment and leads to increased personal awareness and clarity.

 

Program Description

Offered at no cost to patients of the STAR Family Health Team, this 8-week program is for anyone experiencing moderate anxiety/depression. It is also highly recommended for people with a history of depression.

Participants will be trained to identify the triggers and symptoms of anxiety and depression, and then effectively address them as they arise in everyday life.
