John Julian is offering one of the world’s great stress reduction programs at Milpara Community House. The program has four decades of extensive clinical and psychological research, making MBSR the most widely researched course of its type in the world. The evidence-based program teaches a broad array of mindfulness techniques over nine weeks. John uses the clinical version of the program known as Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teaches you the skills to mobilize your mind and body so you can take charge of your life and cope more effectively with stress, anxiety and depression. Research reports a 50-70% reduction in relapses into depression for people with two or more episodes of depression in life. Cost Information: This group program can be subsidised by a Medicare Mental Health Plan’s group component. Your GP can refer you just for the group work -you can remain with your regular mental health clinician or psychologist for one-to-one work.
Cost for the group is dependent on whether or not you have a mental health plan and your income. Please call John to discuss your personal circumstances. As a guide for someone with a mental health plan on Centrelink, it would cost from $0 to $90, if employed the cost is $90 to $170. Without a mental health plan the cost is $350.
