Mindfulness for the Mental Health and Well-Being of Post-Secondary Students: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

This systematic review and meta-analysis seeks to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based interventions for mental health outcomes in post-secondary students. Compared to a passive control, mindfulness-based interventions appear to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and perceived stress post-intervention. The review found no differential effects of mindfulness-based interventions compared with active comparators, however. Overall, mindfulness-based interventions of at least 2 weeks in duration appear to be a better alternative than no intervention for students with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and perceived stress.
