Our self-management support program, initially developed in French, has benefited 4,000 participants so far. The program is now being translated in English.

The Anxiety Self-Management Workshop is the first one available in English, since January 2018. The following workshops are expected to be available in English in 2019:

  • Depression Self-Management
  • Bipolar Disorder Self-Management
  • Self-Esteem Self-Management
  • Self-Management in the Workplace

The full version of this website is currently being translated into English. The current version includes two informative sections intended for:

  • People living with anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder and their loved ones
  • Professionals or organizations interested in offering our workshops

Providing access to self-management support will improve people’s ability to manage their anxiety, depression, or bipolar symptoms.

Self-management includes all the actions we can take to reclaim our health and actively participate in various aspects of our recovery, including adopting behaviours that reduce symptoms, prevent relapses and improve our well-being on a daily basis. The five “J’avance!” workshops are founded on evidence-based data and best practices, with results from funded research. Other organizations giving the workshops have had similar success, which strongly indicates that these results can be replicated on a much larger scale.

“J’avance!” and Revivre are strongly supported by key experts, researchers and organizations, including: Mental Health Commission of Canada, Canadian Mental Health Association (Quebec Division), Mood Disorders Society of Canada, Centre national d’excellence en santé mentale au Québec, Douglas Institute, Université de Montréal, Université du Québec à Montréal, Université de Sherbrooke, Impact 8 (MaRS), the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, Bell Let’s Talk, and Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.

Clinical arguments, research papers, letters of support and references are available upon request.
