The Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) with provincial funding support has launched BounceBack, a resource aimed at helping those aged 15 and above manage mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety and depression.
The program offers two types of support through workbooks and one-on-one telephone coaching as well as a series of online videos offering practical tips available any time at bouncebackvideo.ca.
What makes this online resource all the more helpful is that it is available in multiple languages including English, French, Mandarin, Cantonese, Arabic and Farsi.
The announcement marked the start of the CMHA led Mental Health Week, which took place from May 6 to 12.
The Mississauga Halton LHIN plans, funds and integrates the local health system and is home to over 1.2 million people living in Oakville, Milton, Halton Hills, Mississauga and South Etobicoke.
Those interested in BounceBack telephone coaching and workbooks can talk to their family physician or nurse practitioner to get a referral, or self-refer by completing an online form here: ca.surveygizmo.com/s3/50008680/BOUNCEBACKREFERRAL?sglocale=en. -CINEWS
