What is CBTm?
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with mindfulness (CBTm) is a 5-class program designed to help individuals improve their mental wellness and strengthen their coping skills.
Is CBTm right for your patient/client?
CBTm may be useful for people who are:
- Struggling with anxiety and/or mood symptoms
- Experiencing a negative impact to their life due to their mental health
- Wanting to learn new skills to help manage their own well-being
- Parents or caregivers wanting to build skills to better support their children’s mental health and wellbeing
Who can be referred?
Anyone age 16 or older, located in Manitoba, and willing to participate in the research evaluation of the classes can join. No mental health diagnosis is required.
To refer your patient/client you can either click on the Refer Here button on the right and sign them up directly or you can refer your patient/client to this website and they can sign themselves up under the CBTm Programs page – Adult CBTm.
What happens after I’ve referred a patient/client?
– within 3-5 business days someone from the CBTm Team will connect with the patient/client to complete their enrollment
– upon enrollment completion, you will receive documentation informing you of their progress and the patient/client’s CBTm format choice (facilitator-led or web-course)
– the CBTm classes take approximately 5 weeks to complete (1 week per class)
– the facilitator-led classes can take up to 4 weeks to begin, depending on the current schedule.
– the web-course is self-directed and can take a minimum of 5 weeks to complete
– when the patient/client has completed the program, the CBTm Team will provide documentation letting you know if the patient/client completed all 5 classes or what the outcome of their participation was
– if the patient/client does not complete the program we will also notify you of this change and provide documentation “returning” the client back to your care
What are the CBTm program options?
Our CBTm program offers two options for accessing the classes:
Option 1. Facilitator-led CBTm Classes
- Classes are led by a trained clinician and held virtually over Zoom. Sessions are approximately 90 minutes long and occur once per week for 5 weeks.
- The classes include a PowerPoint presentation in lecture format. Participants are encouraged to discuss and ask the facilitator questions if they feel comfortable.
- Skills practice will be assigned weekly. Participants are welcome to bring one support person to attend the classes.
Option 2. Web-based CBTm Course
- Participants will have access to a 5 class, web-based, self-guided CBTm course. The course has been created to mirror the facilitator-led CBTm classes.
- Each class will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Material may be completed in a single sitting, or the participant can choose to pause the session and return to it at a later time.
- Skills practice will be assigned at the end of each class. A new class will be available 1 week after completion of the prior class material.
Research Information for CBTm Program
In order to determine if the CBTm program is helpful, individuals will be asked to fill out a set of questions each class and following course completion. The questions will ask about current mental health, as well as gather feedback on the program. All information gathered is held on a secure server and data will be made anonymous.
