Are you interested in taking part in a research study about mindfulness following stroke?

Mindfulness is a self-help course. Learning how to be ‘mindful’ can help people cope when they feel anxious or depressed.

Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) are doing research to find out how to help stroke survivors and family members learn how to be mindful. They are looking for stroke survivors and family members to take part in the research.

Taking part involves trying out some mindfulness exercises, and telling GCU what you thought about them in a focus group that will be held in October this year (2017). They will make changes to the Mindfulness course and then hold a focus group in February next year (2018).

The focus groups will be held in community centres in Greenock, and Irvine or Kilmarnock and at Glasgow Caledonian University, West Central Scotland.
