The David Lynch Foundation supports at-risk groups, including homeless people and prison inmates, through scientifically validated programmes such as the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

Remarkable work has been done for homeless men as well as boys and girls who have been saved from a life on the streets, said a Transcendental Meditation teacher.

A new collaboration with an organization that works to help young people stay in school 'is showing great promise', the teacher continued. With thousands of participating schools, the organization offers support for a bright, successful future.

Prison inmates have also experienced profound benefits from the Transcendental Meditation Programme. A study involving 180 inmates found a statistically significant improvement in mood disturbance, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, and hostility. The study was the first randomized controlled study ever showing the effectiveness of any form of meditation in reducing problems among inmates, the teacher said.
