The Vancouver Island Crisis Society has three mandates in our community: We provide an accessible, 24-hour, telephone response service for emotional support during times of crisis, information about community resources, and community education initiatives intended to promote community wellness, and to reduce the incidence of suicide. We value the principles of confidentiality, non-judgmental acceptance, respect for diversity, personal empowerment, and cooperation.
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.
