Crisis Centres are located across Canada in communities of all sizes. Many offer telephone support 24 hours a day, and most are associated with professional counselors.
If you or someone you know may be experiencing signs of suicidal risk, seek contact with any centre as soon as possible, even to discuss whether or not a real risk exists. They are there to listen and are experienced in dealing with these real issues.
You do not need to call the closest centre, but you may want to establish contact with one that suits you based on the list. A crisis centre can help you find the most suitable resource for you.
View our list of crisis centres, or call your local clinic, mental health centre, hospital, doctor or emergency number and ask for assistance in connecting to a crisis centre.
Making the call is an important first step that can save a life.
