To support long-term wellness, researchers created an online version of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy called Mindful Mood Balance (MMB). In a randomized trial, individuals who engaged with the MMB program in addition to conventional care experienced greater improvement in depressive and anxious symptoms, higher rates of recovery and higher quality of life compared to individuals who only received conventional care.
