Mindful Nation UK Government Report

The Mindful Nation UK Report was launched on 20 October 2015 by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on mindfulness.

The report is the result of a 12-month inquiry by the APPG on mindfulness into how mindfulness training can benefit UK services and institutions.

The report’s recommendations include:
– Commissioning Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in the NHS 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 the use of mindfulness training for offender populations in the criminal justice system
