Harnessing the Potential of Mindfulness for Community Health and Health Equity: Lessons Learned from Clinical Research with Historically Marginalized Communities

What can mindfulness do for people that experience stigma, mental health challenges, and health disparities? In this seminar, Dr. Shufang Sun shared findings of several clinical studies generated by her research team at Brown University School of Public Health, "Mindfulness for Health Equity Lab (mHEAL)," including studies with young sexual minority men with depression and anxiety at risk for HIV/STI, and sexual minority women with experiences of early life adversity and eating-related concerns. Dr. Sun also discussed the implications of this work in addressing mental health and promoting optimal health outcomes via mindfulness and stigma reduction strategies.
