Bounce Back: Reclaim your Health is delivered through the Canadian Mental Health Association, Manitoba and Winnipeg in partnership with the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority. A diagnosis is not required to participate in Bounce Back. There are two evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions that the Bounce Back program employs. The first is a psycho-educational video (online or DVD) for anyone wanting to improve their mental health by learning new techniques to reduce symptoms.

The second intervention is a referral from an individual's family doctor or nurse practitioner in the IERHA region to the telephone-coaching component of the program. Once referred, individual's are provided access to CBT-based workbooks and connected to a Bounce Back Coach for up to 5 sessions. During these session, individuals have the ability to check-in, problem-solve, and discuss their learning. Within the health care/mental health care system, Bounce Back provides a preventative role in the treatment of mental health problems, helping individuals in the short-term, but with long-term positive effects.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with

(CBTm) Classes


Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is recommended as the first line treatment for most mental health difficulties. However, many individuals do not have access to CBT. There are increasing CBT self-help options (books, websites, online interactive programs etc.), however, individuals are more likely to use self-help programs when limited therapist guidance is included. Therefore, in collaboration with Clinical Health Psychology and Psychiatry Departments from the University of Manitoba, we have implemented CBTm Education Classes to allow participants to:

  • learn the basic principles of CBT
  • learn the self-help CBT resources
  • get a “head start” on CBT.

The four classes are semi-structured and provide an introduction to mindfulness, cognitive behavioral theory, thought records, exposure and behavioral activation, goal setting, problem solving, and healthy living. The classes include both information and experiential learning. Home practice is recommended weekly. Individuals can bring one natural support. Click the CBTm Classes Infographic below for more information you can print.

When/Where: One 90 minutes class per week for 4 weeks. Location varies. Please contact Central Intake for more information. (phone number below).

Cost: Free.

Who is it for: Individuals 18 years of age or older.

How to Access: If you are interested in attending the CBTm classes you can contact Central Intake at

Relational Therapy

Community Mental Health Relational Therapy (Couple & Family) was developed in partnership with the University of Winnipeg's Aurora Family Therapy Centre.

What is Relational Therapy?

We all have times in our relationships and in our lives when there is more rough than smooth, more down than up, when we suffer emotional pain and despair and end up with a feeling of "What's the use?"

Sometimes the problems are between partners, parents and children, in-laws, or even employer and employee. When problems crop up between you and those you care about, relational therapy will help you find resolutions. Our therapists will work with you on your goals to help you find a satisfactory resolution to your problems.

When/Where: Services are offered from September 1 to April 30th every year. Location will be determined after the therapist return your call.

Cost: Free.

Who is it for: For couples and families who reside in the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority.

How to Access: Please call (204) 785-7716. Please leave a name, mailing address (including postal code), who referred you (you can refer yourself) and phone number you can be reached at. A therapist will call you back as soon as a space becomes available.

  Shared Care

What: Shared Care is a mental health program that involves primary health care providers working collaboratively with a Shared Care Mental Health Worker and a consulting psychiatrist. This collaborative model is to assist individuals with mental health difficulties by accessing mental health services in a timely manner within the familiarity of their medical clinic. This collaboration addresses the whole person and not just one aspect of their condition. The Shared Care Mental Health Worker works in the medical clinic and partners with the primary health care provider to assess and treat mental health and physical conditions. Combining this care allows individual's to feel that, for most problems, they have come to the right place.

When/Where: Located at  Beausejour Primary Care Clinic at 151 1st St. South.

Cost: Free.

Who is it for: Individuals currently receiving care from a primary health care provider located in the Beausejour HEW Clinic or in the Beausejour Primary Care Clinic.

How to Access: Access begins when a primary health care provider identifies the fact that an individual in their care is experiencing mental health difficulties. In these situations, the primary health care provider may refer the patient to the Shared Care Mental Health Worker


Community Wellness Initiative

What: The Community Wellness Initiative is a collaboration between the Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority and Manitoba Housing which supports the overall mental health and wellness of tenants living in public housing (Manitoba Housing) and assists tenants to bring about positive change in their communities.
