If you are in crisis or need to talk, we are here to listen. For 24-hour help, call 1-888-353-CARE (2273). Trained staff and crisis line volunteers can help with a variety of mental health issues such as suicide risk, stressors in relationships, and domestic violence. What determines a crisis depends on the individual, and we recognize that not all people deal with life’s stressors in exactly the same ways. Crisis Line volunteers are available to listen, help problem solve, and help make connections to community resources in the East Kootenay region.
