Note: There is only one condition in this study. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is combined with Safety Planning Intervention (SPI). All individuals who choose to participate will receive MBCT+SPI.
Safety Planning Intervention (SPI), a very brief intervention focused on identifying personalized coping strategies to manage acute suicidality, is combined with Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), a group intervention comprised of mindfulness training and cognitive therapy techniques. Treatment lasts 9 weeks.
- The study is a nine-week clinical trial combining Safety Planning Intervention plus Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for patients with a recent history of suicidal thoughts or behavior and current or past depressive symptoms.
- These treatments work for depression and some preliminary data suggest they may work to prevent suicidal behavior.
- Nine weeks of free treatment
- Clinical assessments
- An opportunity to offer your views on treatment and suggestions for improving the treatment in focus groups
