On 15 April 2013 Psychiatric Annals / Healio reported: Refugees from the Congolese civil war who practiced Transcendental Meditation experienced significant reductions in posttraumatic stress symptoms, according to new study results published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress. The reduction in symptom severity continued for an extended period of time. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

Brian Rees, MD, MPH, of the US Army Reserve Medical Corps, told Psychiatric Annals.
