If you like having someone to motivate you and encourage you to reflect, the BounceBack® coaching program may be right for you. A trained coach will help you learn skills to improve your mental health in up to six telephone sessions over three to six months. Your coach will help keep you on track and offer support as you work through the program materials. You design your own program by selecting materials from 20 different modules or 9 specially designed workbooks for youth. Coaching and workbooks are available in English and French.

I am very pleased with BounceBack®. Especially since I gave up my driver’s licence, I found the phone coaching very worthwhile. I am looking forward to being able to maintain the recent progress I have experienced.
