The Mindful Nation UK report is the result of a 12-month inquiry by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mindfulness into how mindfulness training can benefit key areas of our society. Today, it declared its intention for Britain to become a mindful nation.
The report’s recommendations include:
• Commissioning Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for the 580,000 adults at risk of recurrent depression each year, in line with National Institute For Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines
• Creating three mindfulness Teaching Schools (to be selected by the Department of Education) to pioneer mindfulness teaching in schools.
• Training government staff in mindfulness, especially in the health, education and criminal justice sectors.
• Researching mindfulness training in the criminal justice system for offender populations
The Mindful Nation UK report is the first policy document of its kind, seeks to address mental health concerns in the areas of education, health, the workplace and the criminal justice system through the application of mindfulness interventions” Mindfulness Initiative
