Stress: Take Charge!

Think stress is all in your head? Think again!

Want to improve how you respond to daily stressors?

Stress: Take Charge offers a skill based and effective approach to managing stress.

Stress: Take Charge is a stress management program specifically designed for the Canadian Military as part of Strengthening the Forces, to improve the health and well being of the serving member.

Stress: Take Charge is a self-directed approach to stress management through self-awareness, behaviour change and skill building. Participants will be empowered in stress management by identifying strategies that they already use and encouraged to practice and implement new strategies in order to optimize their stress hardiness.

Stress management can be a force multiplier!

Stress management is a daily balancing act that has an impact on physical and mental well being.

The Stress: Take Charge program consists of six, two hour modules filled with information and opportunities to learn new skills. Participants will:

  • Understand the stress reaction in the military context.
  • Choose and practice specific skills that they will use to decrease stress and build resilience
  • Benefit from regular practice of the relaxation response.

Stress: Take Charge has been developed by CAF Health Services Group Headquarters, Directorate of Force Health Protection as part of Strengthening the Forces.
