Answering every call - COVID-19 Response

We are an essential service, providing 24/7 distress and crisis response. Answering our crisis phone lines and online chats is our top priority, and we are working to ensure every call and chat is answered during the health emergency. During the COVID-19 crisis we ha put in place short-term safety measures and follow-up calls to help people overwhelmed by social isolation and their fear for the future, both of which are causing intense mental distress and worsening any pre-existing mental illness. At the same time, normal mental health supports have shut down or reduced services drastically.
