MYmind is a meditation and mindfulness program developed in the Netherlands. The Developmental Disabilities and Mental Health (DDMH) Lab is working to evaluate this program with Canadian youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their parents. They are exploring different ways MYmind is helping teens and parents navigate through daily life stressors. They learn and practice yoga, relaxation techniques and sitting meditation. MYmind project is in its third year at the DDMH Lab!
