Mark Williams talks about how mindfulness can help treat depression

 

Professor Mark Williams, co-author of Mindfulness, has been traveling the country giving talks at various events to packed audiences on the benefits of using mindfulness when treating depression.

Mindfulness, written with Dr Danny Penman, is founded on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). MBCT, co-developed by Mark Williams, is recommended by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for the prevention of depression. Mindfulness reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that can be incorporated into daily life to help break the cycle of unhappiness, stress, anxiety, depression and mental exhaustion and promote genuine joie de vivre.

 

One particular event in June was part of a series of four free forums on mental health hosted by Ruby Wax, Judith Owen and the mental health charity SANE. Held at the Menier Chocolate Factory, members of the public get the opportunity to listen to leading experts from the fields of psychology, psychiatry and neuroscience.

 

Mark enjoyed a warm reception and much support from his fellow panel members: Judith Owen, Ruby Wax, and founder and chief executive of SANE, Marjorie Wallace.
