New e-Mental Health Anxiety Program Launched to Support Young Adults
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, in partnership with the Strongest Families Institute, has launched I CAN (Conquer Anxiety and Nervousness), a new e-mental health program designed to support young adults ages 18-30 with anxiety.
Strongest Families Institute currently offers anxiety programs for children ages 6-17. The province has contributed $170,000 towards the development of the I CAN program in an effort to support the health of young adults.
The I CAN program supports young adults in learning life skills to overcome anxiety and cope with major life stressors by offering distance telephone and online coaching, and is free to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. The I CAN program is now open for registration and people can sign up by calling Strongest Families Institute directly at 1-866-470-7111 or by visiting Bridge the gApp at www.bridgethegapp.ca.
