Aims: The present study aimed to investigate the feasibility of running and evaluating a mindfulness group on an inpatient ward for individuals with chronic and treatment resistant psychosis. Method: Eight participants attended a 6-week mindfulness group on a specialist tertiary inpatient ward. Results: This study demonstrated that mindfulness exercises were acceptable and well-tolerated by participants. Measuring outcome, systemic challenges and participant experience are discussed.
