Mindful life – Well at work

An opportunity to participate in research

Do you work in the public sector caring for others? Would you like to take part in a national research study offering free online courses for wellbeing? People working in the public sector, particularly those in healthcare, social care and teaching, experience high levels of stress because of the demanding nature of their work.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and stress reduction psychoeducation are both recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as effective wellbeing interventions for healthcare and other public sector employees.

Prefer to do mindfulness?

If you work for Sussex Partnership and you already know you would prefer to do a mindfulness course you can sign up here for the next courses starting in January.
