Community and Mental Health Resources

If you are feeling overwhelmed and/or distressed as a result of the ongoing pandemic, please ask for help. Call 911 if you believe there is an immediate danger to your life or someone else.

TIP: A local crisis or distress call centre is a great resource, even when it isn't you that is in a crisis. Call them if you need advice on how to manage and approach someone else in crisis.
