VANCOUVER ISLAND CRISIS LINE
The Vancouver Island Crisis Line is committed to bringing mental health wellness to all communities of Vancouver Island by providing accessible, 24 hour, 7 days a week, emotional telephone support during times of crisis, including connection to the Mental Health Crisis Professionals when required, and information about community resources. We value the principles of confidentiality, non-judgmental acceptance, and respect for diversity, personal empowerment and cooperation.
Online Emotional Support - Anouther service newly added to increase access to support services, there is now a link called, 'Chat Now' on our webpage, www.vicrisis.ca, that will allow someone to begin connecting. Available every night, 7 days a week, from 6pm to 10pm. Chat creates a safe online venue where people can reach out for help. This will be an outlet for populations traditionally hard to engage in face-to-face mental health care such as teens, those who are homebound, people with social anxieties and phobias, and people with hearing or speech impairments.
