Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction


All programs are open to everyone. You do not need to be an NSMC patient.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is developed from the foundations of Mind Body Integrated Medicine. Participants participate in "formal" and "informal" mindfulness practices that promote healthy ways to cope with stress and life challenges.
