Mental Health Resources
If you are in immediate need of help call 911 or go to your nearest hospital
1 in 5 Canadians struggle with mental health illnesses. It’s important that you find the resources that you, your friends, and loved ones need to start the process of treatment and care.
If you are uncomfortable talking to friends/family/loved ones, seek a mental health professional. Your family doctor or nurse practitioner can evaluate your situation, talk to you about treatment options and refer you to a community mental health and addictions service provider.
If you don't already have one, here’s help for finding a family doctor or nurse practitioner.
