MINT pilot study: a text message package as an adjunct to existing Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy in an Early Intervention setting.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is practised in a number of settings including Early Intervention (EI) for psychosis services. People with psychotic symptoms face difficulties including compliance problems with home-based practice, which may affect the utility of MBCT. Ms Miller examined text message technology as an adjunct to support home-based practice. A single-case multiple-baseline design was used to assess the mindfulness text message intervention in nine participants. Her results showed a statistically significant increase of group mean total practice time per week of 7.1 nominal minutes with a medium effect size, with large variation between participants. Her research supports the use of text messages as an adjunct to support home-based practice in an EI setting. Future studies may explore the variation between participants, the amount of home-based practice required to produce clinically significant improvement and the use of the intervention in other settings.
