Depression affects over 16 million adults in the United States every year. Furthermore, depression is a chronic and reoccurring disorder for more than half of the individuals who experience it. There are various treatment options for depression; however, many people are unable to achieve long-term recovery from the disorder. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is an evidence-based intervention that significantly reduces the rates of depression relapse. The purpose of this project was to obtain funding to implement an on-going MBCT group at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian’s Mental Health Center in Orange County, California. The goals of the group are to prevent depression relapse by helping participants develop and maintain positive coping skills, learn to be accepting of their thoughts and feelings, and become more compassionate towards their experiences. Included in this project is a literature review, suggested funder, staffing pattern, implementation timeline, evaluation strategy, and budget. Submission of the grant was not a requirement for this project.
