• We examined the relative efficacy of mindfulness-based interventions on clinical symptoms of psychiatric disorders.
• 142 randomized clinical trials were included (N = 12,005 participants). Control conditions were coded on a five-tier system.
• At post-treatment, mindfulness interventions were equivalent to evidence-based treatments and superior to other comparisons.
• At follow-up, mindfulness interventions were equivalent to minimal and evidence-based treatments and superior to others.
• The most consistent evidence for mindfulness-based interventions was seen for depression, pain, smoking, and addictions.
