Bounce Back®: Reclaim Your Health (depression, stress and anxiety)add
If you’re 15 or older, have mild to moderate depression, or are struggling with stress or anxiety, BounceBack® can help. It’s free, confidential, and can be accessed from anywhere.
We all feel sad sometimes. But when feeling low, stressed out, worried, depressed, irritable, angry – or even nothing at all – gets to be too much, remember that you do have the power to change how you feel.
Choose what’s best for you from our 3 platforms. Your journey, your pace.
Want someone to cheer you on? Work with one of our trained BounceBack® coaches, who will help you learn skills to improve your mental health in up to 6 phone sessions. You pick the topics you want to work on from our 9 booklets and your coach supports and encourages you along the way. Think of it as having a personal guide through the program.
Coaching is available in English, French, Mandarin, Cantonese or Punjabi.
Prefer to work on your own? No problem! Use our online program to learn at your own pace with the tools to get you where you want to go. You get access to the same 9 booklets, as well as interactive PDF worksheets and short videos.
If you find you need more help along the way, remember that a coach is ready to start working with you at any time.
Resources are available in English.

“Thank you for being my coach. I really found the CBT program interesting. It helped me to calm down and look at things in a different way instead of getting angry or upset. I enjoyed it very much and I would recommend the program to others.”
"I have gained more confidence and peace within myself. I am not as critical with myself and if I am, I am able to catch it and stop before spiraling down. I am standing up for myself."
"The Bounce Back program has given me a better understanding of my anxiety and how it affects my day to day in a way that leaves room for compassion for myself."
