The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) for people with Parkinson's Disease. Patient involvement was used in the design of the research, and minor adaptations of the MBSR programme were made to accommodate the specific needs of this population. A mixed methods design was used, with measurements taken at baseline, week 8 upon completion of the course, and week 16. The quantitative measures used were the DASS-21, PDQ 39, and the MAAS, and a bespoke qualitative questionnaire was used. The findings were that there were significant improvements in depression, anxiety, and stress at weeks 8 and 16. There were insignificant improvements in mobility, stigma, and social support, and levels of mindfulness showed little change. Four out of six participants reported some positive change. MBSR was acceptable to Parkinson's Disease patients, and could be of benefit to them. Further research using larger sample sizes is required.
