There are some conditions that participants are encouraged to be under the care of a mental health professional or medical doctor.  In other situations, participants may be encouraged to delay entering an MBSR program or seek other treatments.

A partial list of conditions or life situations may include a history of substance or alcohol abuse with less than a year of being clean or sober, thoughts or attempts of suicide, recent or unresolved trauma, as well as being in the middle of major life changes.

Please discuss any questions you may have with your treatment provider or if you would like the MBSR instructor to work in conjunction with your provider. 

Are there conditions or life situations where taking an MBSR course is not recommended?
