Purpose of Study 

Antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction (AISD) affects the majority of women taking antidepressants and reduces medication compliance: however there is a paucity of evidence-based strategies for the management of this condition. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of non-antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction and may be beneficial in the treatment of AISD. The investigators propose a randomized, controlled, proof-of-principle trial to establish preliminary evidence of efficacy of MBCT in AISD and to inform the design of a larger trial to evaluate its effectiveness
