Considering factors such as high workloads, strict deadlines, and financial challenges—various studies report graduate students in helping professions experience mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. This research poster highlights an explanatory mixed methods study examining the integration of a mindfulness-based curriculum–Mindfulness without Border’s Mindfulness Ambassadors Council program—in a consultation class for first-year School Psychology graduate students. This program has been found to be related to decreased stress and anxiety amongst various populations (e.g., teachers, teenagers, low-income mothers), but has not yet been examined with those in the helping professions. Using quantitative and qualitative data, this study examines the impact of this intervention on factors related to the students’ well-being and professional efficacy, including stress, self-compassion, mindfulness, and consultation knowledge. This study also examines the acceptability of the intervention.
