About VANCOUVER ISLAND CRISIS SOCIETY (including the Vancouver Island Crisis Line)
The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is committed to bringing mental health wellness to our community through education around suicide prevention. We believe that by bringing the subject of mental health out of the shadows we can bring wellness into the workplace, into our homes and to our community. As part of our commitment we provide an accessible, 24-hour Crisis Line and online crisis chat and crisis text support services that operate nightly.
The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is committed to providing accessible voice, text and chat crisis intervention and suicide prevention services, including postvention programs. We endeavour to provide emotional support during times of crisis, information about community resources, education intended to promote community wellness, and reduce the incidence of suicide. We value the principals of confidentiality, non-judgemental acceptance, and respect for diversity, personal empowerment, and cooperation.
