Our Aims

We want to know whether mindfulness training supports University of Cambridge students to study and thrive. We are concerned about the rising levels of stress among university students at Cambridge and in other Universities and want to develop prevention. Eight-week mindfulness courses are being provided as part of the study from Michaelmas 2016. Mindfulness is a type of mental training that enhances people’s mental health and helps them develop resilience to life stress. We expect that the benefits will extend to students.

Recruitment for this study has now ended. However, if you want to know more about it you can visit the Participant Information Section.
