Mindfulness and Self-Compassion to Improve Mental Health and Well-Being for Young People

A pilot and feasibility trial of a mindfulness intervention for young people with IBD.

Researchers at the University of Sheffield are looking for young people aged 16-25 and living within or close to the South Yorkshire region to take part in a study interested in the potential benefits of mindfulness to young people living with IBD.  

This new study, funded by Crohn’s & Colitis UK, will assess whether attending a 16-week group, in which attendees will learn skills in mindfulness and being kind to themselves, can improve the way young people feel when living with IBD.
