Young People’s Mental Health Is Getting Worse, But Mindfulness Training Isn’t the Answer

A UK-based research project, the largest of its kind on the subject, has suggested mindfulness training in schools might be a dead end—at least as a universal, one-size-fits-all approach. The study, which involved 28,000 children, 650 teachers and 100 schools, looked at the impact of mindfulness training over an eight-year period and found that the technique didn’t help the mental health and well-being of adolescents ages 11 to 14. The authors suggested investigating other options to improve adolescent mental health.
