We are not a crisis counselling service

If you are in crisis between pre-scheduled sessions, here are some options:

Anywhere in Canada

  • call 1 833 456 4566
  • Canada’s 9-8-8: Suicide Crisis Helpline Has Launched. People across Canada now have access to a new and important source of support by dialing 9-8-8. Suicide Crisis Helpline is available nationwide in English and French, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In British Columbia

  • BC Mental Health Support Line: Call 310-6789 (no area code). This number will connect you to your local BC crisis line without a wait or busy signal, 24 hours a day. Crisis line workers are there to listen and support you as well as refer you to community resources.
  • BC Crisis Centre Chat: crisiscentrechat.ca to chat online with a crisis responder. It’s available from noon to 1:00am every day.
