What is Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) Mobile Application?

• It is a bilingual mobile training tool (adjunct to classroom training) developed to improve short-term performance and long-term mental health outcomes
• Provides the tools and resources required to manage and support CAF member, family members and the general public.
R2MR training is layered and tailored to meet the relevant demands and responsibilities CAF personnel encounter at each stage of their career and while on deployment.


Recognizing that repeated application and practice of mental skills in the training environment improves retention and effectiveness, the R2MR program has expanded training beyond the classroom environment. This includes providing personal training tools directly to CAF members by developing a mobile application, improving the ability of CAF course instructors to coach mental skills in regular training activities, and improving the ability of the CAF leadership to mentor these skills through the career cycle.

Even better, integration with Apple’s Health app, HealthKit, will allow you to measure your heart rate before, while, and after using R2MR’s Tactical Breathing exercise to compare your results. When you provide permission to access health data from R2MR, “…your app can become a valuable health data source and HealthKit can use the shared data to bring more powerful health and fitness solutions.”
Quote from Apple website:


“The R2MR mobile app is an on-the-go training tool designed to complement the current R2MR curriculum. By ensuring that training is readily available in the CAF members’ hands wherever they serve, be it Canada or abroad and in their professional role or personal life, we are striving to improve performance, resiliency and well-being for years to come.”
- Surgeon General, Downes BGen

CAF Members

“convenient access to information…”
“Having something to coach you along will ensure the correctness of your breathing i.e. making sure your count time is right.”


R2MR is free to download and use. R2MR Full Access allows for unlimited use of all tools.

Excellent app

Excellent app, several well-developed tools. The breathing exercise is much better than any of the other ones currently available for free. The self-dialogue exercise is strongly grounded in CBT principles. Fully bilingual. Great find, will definitely recommend.
