The Cardiac Wellbeing Course

Researchers at the Online Therapy Unit are evaluating a new online depression and anxiety management course for people in Canada who have experienced a cardiac event, such as a myocardial infarction (heart attack) or unstable angina.

This new program is called the Cardiac Wellbeing Course, which is informed by an evidence-based psychological treatment called cognitive behavioural therapy. The course was designed because depression and anxiety are common after a cardiac event but many people never seek treatment.

The Cardiac Wellbeing course is 8 weeks long and consists of 5 lessons. Lessons consist of educational materials that are accessed online, and clients are assigned a guide who provides weekly support and encouragement as people complete the Course. The simple but effective techniques delivered in the Cardiac Wellbeing Course helps people to cope with thoughts, behaviours and physical symptoms of depression and anxiety.

This study has been approved by the Research Ethics Board at the University of Regina. For more information about the Cardiac Wellbeing Course, please contact the primary researcher, Luke Schneider by email at or by telephone at 306-585-4203.
