Self Help Anxiety program

A new free self help program, that uses telephone coaching, skill building books and online videos to help those 15 and up battling anxiety or depression is coming to the Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough area.

The Canadian Mental Health Association’s Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge Tanya Kowalenko says residents should look for the Bounce Back brochure in the mail this week or next.

The program involves phone coaching, skill-building workshops and online videos.

BounceBack coaches are extensively trained in the delivery of the program and are overseen by clinical psychologists.
