Mindfulness Helps Teens with Depression | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it
Mindfulness is entering the lives of many new young people as it’s added to school curriculums around the world. This victory is even more relevant as studies show that mindfulness helps reduce teen depression.
Kat Tansey's insight:

The need for bringing mindfulness into school curriculums is urgent. There are enough studies now that to prove it is effective.

 

It is time to act. Do what you can to promote this. Do it where you are. Do it with what you have.

This can be done. We can do this. Now.
