Mental Health and Wellbeing Lab

At the Mental Health and Wellbeing Lab we are interested in the researching the two modes of living – ‘being’ and ‘doing’.

Specifically we explore the effects of mindfulness and mindfulness-based interventions, maladaptive thinking styles such as rumination and worry, barriers to being mindful and meaning of engagement in mindfulness. Research at the lab has explored these topics meta-analyses, structural equation modelling and qualitative analyses.

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Lab has been involved with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre at the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
