Mental Health Resources

Positive mental health is the capacity to feel, think, and act in ways that enhance the ability to enjoy life and deal with challenges.

Many Canadians are affected by mental illness either directly or indirectly through family, friends or colleagues. It’s OK to not be OK.

Learn more about mental illness, its risk factors, symptoms, treatment and suicide prevention and how to get help by visiting the Health Canada Website.

Find a long list of crisis and non-crisis lines for adults, youth, LGBTQ2+, veterans, indigenous people, farmers and more.


If you are experiencing an emergency, please go to the emergency department of your nearest hospital or call 911.

Talking about suicide is an essential starting point for prevention that is within everyone’s reach.
