The effect of treatment on anxiety and depression was analyzed using analysis of variance. In phase two, the TAU group received the treatment and was assessed both before and after receiving it. The results from this were combined with those receiving MBCT in phase one and the two groups were followed up at three months. It was concluded that MBCT group in phase one had significant improvements and a decrease in anxiety while in phase two, both groups at three month follow up showed statistically significant improvements in both anxiety and depression.
