Getting Help

If you are facing an emergency, call 911, go to your local hospital Emergency Room or call the Crisis Response helpline (807-346-8282).

Everyone needs help sometimes. Whether it is to help with school, work, friends, mental health - that is what this site is about. We want to give you useful information about mental health, and where you can go if you want to talk someone. You don't have to deal with your problems alone.

If you are struggling with your mental health, don't forget that there is help out there, so reach out and get it...you deserve it.
