CoMinD: Correlates of mindfulness training in department of defense personnel

This study investigates the effects of mindfulness training in Dutch Department of Defence personnel.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an evidence-based intervention to reduce stress and improve mental health. Free of charge mindfulness courses are offered for Department of Defence personnel by the department of Spiritual Care Services (DGV) of the Dutch military. 
The effects of attending a mindfulness course can vary across participants. We will investigate whether subgroups can be identified with different trajectories in mental health. In addition, we will investigate to what extent participants perform the mindfulness exercises during and after the course. With this knowledge, we aim to further tailor the mindfulness courses provided by DGV to Department of Defence personnel.
