Crisis Centres across Canada

Calling a Crisis Centre is the right thing to do if you are in crisis, or if you need support for someone you know. Trained professionals are available 24 hours a day.

Please select your region from the list on the right and select a crisis centre closest to you. If you cannot find a crisis centre near you, any of the 24 hour toll free numbers in your province will be able to help.

Other information for each centre is also listed. Postal and email addresses are provided for administrative contact, not crisis purposes.

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.
