AbstractDepression is common with a high risk of relapse/recurrence. There is evidence from multiple randomised controlled trials (RCTs) demonstrating the efficacy of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) for the prevention of depressive relapse/recurrence, and it is included in several national clinical guidelines for this purpose. However, little is known about whether MBCT is being delivered safely and effectively in real-world healthcare settings. In the present study, five mental health services from a range of regions in the UK contributed data (n = 1554) to examine the impact of MBCT on depression...

ADHD is best dealt with by spreading it thinly with a knife while gently twirling?If only dealing with ADHD was so tasty!Over the past few weeks I have encountered several guys who have ADHD like a sack of spilled marbles, but they don’t trea...

AbstractNonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) refers to purposely injuring one ’s body without suicidal intent via methods such as cutting or hitting oneself, and is a serious health concern that has been linked to detrimental behavioral and physical health consequences.

However, empirical investigation into the affective and cognitive states preceding NSSI has been limited, especially during daily life. The current st...
