Fraser Health Crisis Line

What kinds of calls does the crisis line receive?
People call for numerous and varied reasons: suicide, mental health problems, relationship conflicts, family violence, grief, addiction issues, or just plain loneliness.

How could calling the crisis line help?
Callers are invited to talk about their situations and explore possible options. Together, the caller and volunteer can sort out what might increase the caller's ability to manage and cope with the situation. Should a caller require help beyond that which the crisis line can provide, information about available community resources is offered. After talking with a volunteer, callers often report they feel less isolated or alone and are better able to cope.
