Bounce Back is a free virtual health skill-building program that helps people 13 and up who are experiencing mild to moderate depression or anxiety. It is available anywhere in British Columbia.
Bounce Back helps people learn to stop unhelpful thinking, manage worry and anxiety, and become more active and assertive. The approach is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which focuses on changing behaviours and developing personal coping strategies.
CBT is recognized as one of the most effective ways of helping build well-being and resiliency for people who live with anxiety and depression.
