Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) is mental health resilience education and training for CAF members and their families. Designed by the CAF, the overall objective of R2MR is to improve mental health outcomes of military members and families by preparing you pre-deployment, and supporting you post-deployment.  
Pre-Deployment Post-Deployment
Phase One: An eight hour brief delivered to CAF members focusing on the theory of how people react to stress. Phase Four: Two briefs, two hours each, delivered to CAF members focusing on decompression training.
 
Phase Two: A practical brief delivered to CAF members focusing on stress reduction skills like deep breathing and visualization.
 
Phase Five: A brief delivered through local MFRCs to family members, prior to the return of the member. Training centres on recognizing and managing transition and reintegration challenges.
Phase Three: A three hour brief delivered to family members of deploying CAF members. Delivered by local MFRCs or online this phase is geared toward the needs and deployment challenges of families. Phase Six: Follow-up screening for CAF members three to six months post-deployment.
