Bounce Back: Reclaim Your Health
Creating community based self-help strategies to improve the mental health of British Columbians
Bounce Back: Reclaim Your Health is a program designed to help adults experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety that may arise from stress or other life circumstances. The project is led by CMHA BC Division and funded by the BC Ministry of Health Services.
Bounce Back offers two forms of help. The first is a DVD video providing practical tips on managing mood and healthy living, available in English, Mandarin and Cantonese. You can watch a 6-minute preview of the video below:
The second service available is a guided self-help program with telephone support. The program teaches skills to overcome unhelpful thinking, reduced activities, low socialization and sleep problems, as well as strategies for problem solving, through the help of a Bounce Back community coach. The guided self-help program is available in English and Cantonese. Access to the guided self-help program requires a doctor's referral.
If you’re interested in taking the Bounce Back program, please talk to your family doctor or contact our office.
