12-week Outcomes of a Mindfulness-Based Digital Intervention to Support Vulnerable and At-risk Patients During COVID-19

The World Health Organisation declared the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak a public-health emergency on January 30, 2020 and six weeks later, it was categorised as a pandemic. COVID-19 is taking its toll on people's mental health, particularly as people are advised to self-isolate, quarantine, and shield. Digital health has an important role to play in keeping people connected and managing mental health and wellbeing during these times.

We evaluated the 12-week outcomes of the digitally delivered Gro Health platform, a behaviour change intervention for self-management of mental wellbeing. The intervention provides education reinforcing the importance of these modifiable risk factors, education around minimising the risk of infection and spread of COVID-19, guided activities to maintain positive mental wellbeing (fitness, yoga, guided mindfulness meditations) and uses behavioural techniques including goal-setting, peer support, and behavioural self-monitoring.

Results are pending publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
