Who should attend

This course is suitable for all employees and volunteers. You do not need any previous experience of meditation, or training in mental health or wellbeing to attend.  However, mindfulness is not suitable for everybody at all times. For example, research has shown that mindfulness for depression is best learnt when mental health is reasonably good. We suggest that if your mental health is currently very poor, it may not be the right time to start learning mindfulness, and instead waiting until you are feeling better before starting new practices.
