Resources for Marginalized Communities and Allies

The Canada Suicide Prevention Service was built as an equitable, accessible service, there to support anyone in need living anywhere in Canada. The CSPS helpline will always be guided by principles of inclusion, stakeholder engagement and accessibility.

We are experiencing an international civil rights movement of unprecedented size, in the midst of the uncertainty and challenges of a pandemic.  You and your loved ones may be feeling especially isolated, overwhelmed or helpless in the face of these difficult, complex issues.

This page is designed to be a helpful starting point, whether you are a member of a marginalized community looking for resources to support your well-being and mental health, or are interested in becoming or being a better Ally.

The CSPS helpline is always here to support anyone with concerns related to suicide. Our compassionate, highly-trained responders are available 24/7/365 to help you feel safer and explore ways to cope with suicidal ideation.

Toll-free phone support is available in French and English at 1-833-456-4566.

Text message support is available in English from 4PM to 12AM Eastern at 45645, standard messaging rates according to your phone carrier contract may apply.
