Canadian Mental Health Association expands to serve Punjabi-speaking community

STRESS, low mood, and anxiety are very common feelings. There are times when all of us could use some help moving past them to ensure we feel our best and get the most out of life. Bounce Back is a program that will help individuals by providing tools to feel better.

Bounce Back is a free program available to adults in British Columbia. It offers two forms of help: one is a free DVD which can be requested by phone or picked up at your local doctor’s office. The DVD offers helpful strategies to overcome feelings of low mood, stress, and anxiety. Telephone coaching is the second form of help and is available by doctor referral. Your Bounce Back coach will assist you to set goals to improve your own emotional well-being and will offer workbooks on a variety of subjects to help you reach your goals.

The Bounce Back Program is now expanding to serve the Punjabi speaking community. As of November 3, this free program has been available with coaching in Punjabi (written materials will be in English).

The program is also available in English, French, and Cantonese. Talk to your doctor or call 1 866-639-0522 for more information about Bounce Back.

Funding for this program is provided by the Ministry of Health. The program is operated by Canadian Mental Health Association.
