Bouncing Back, a program developed in 2014 by Simon Fraser University’s (SFU) Health Promotion team has received the PCCHA Golden Gull Award for Best Health Education and Promotion Practices.

Bouncing Back was designed to help SFU students to be resourceful and effective in managing stressors so that they can bounce back quickly in times of challenge. In addition to reframing ideas that are traditionally viewed as negative as opportunities, such as ‘failure’ and ‘change’, it takes a strengths-based and proactive approach to educating and supporting students in developing their resilience and wellbeing. What started as an in-person workshop has since expanded due to its success. The program now includes a non-credit online course open to all SFU students with versions for both undergraduate and graduate students.
