Offered through Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Bounce Back is a FREE, skill building program for individuals aged 15+ experiencing mild to moderate depression or anxiety.
Please note that Bounce Back accepts referrals from General Practitioners/Family Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Psychiatrists.
The Bounce Back team has amalgamated and our program is now based out of Royal City Centre in New West. We serve both the VCH and FHA health care regions. Any of the above practitioners who practice within this area should fax completed Bounce Back Practitioner Referral forms to 604-872-5934.
Patients who are referred to the program have the option to access telephone coaching in addition to the other program materials.
The program is now available to persons aged 15+. Youth referrals do require additional information be provided on the referral form.
Bounce Back coaching and materials are available in several languages including English, French, Punjabi, Cantonese, Mandarin, Farsi and Spanish. Participants are asked to indicate their preferred language on the referral form.
We ask that practitioners accept full, ongoing, clinical responsibility for their patient, and complete the Bounce Back Practitioner Referral form with the patient, to the best of their ability. Clarity and completeness is important. Please provide the full name, telephone and fax number of the referrer, should any follow up be required.
Bounce Back is led by CMHA BC and funded by the BC Ministry of Health.
Promote the mental health of British Columbians and support the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mild to moderate depression and/or anxiety.
