And in this case that "something" is kind of a lot: one 2.5 hour in-person class per week, a day-long retreat, and daily 45-minute home practice exercises. Still worth it in some case though I'm sure, especially considering the well-known side effects of antidepressants. I don't know whether mindfulness has any negative side effects, though I could imagine how it might be linked to rumination (me me me, my thoughts, my world, for an hour at a time).
