Training for Awareness, Resilience, and Action (TARA) is an intervention for reducing depression using a combination of mindfulness, yoga, and psychotherapy. The question of whether TARA can reduce suicidal ideation and change brain connections may be examined through the use of brain imaging techniques at the beginning and end of treatment.
