With thanks to academics in the field, we are sharing research with the OMF community.  You can read more from a 2023 paper – Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy v. treatment as usual in people with bipolar disorder: A multicentre, randomised controlled trial by clicking on the image below. The research and reporting in this article are independent of the OMF.
