Crisis Society
Advocacy Description: 

Vancouver Island Crisis Chat provides online emotional support, crisis intervention, and suicide prevention services. Our crisis workers are here to listen and to support you through whatever difficult times you may be facing.

When you phone, you can expect a non-judgmental caring voice on the other end of the line. We want to understand how you are feeling and what has happened to bring you to call. We are here for short-term emotional support. We will ask callers whether they feel suicidal if that pertains to the nature of the call. We hope to leave you with a plan on how to manage the concerns that led you to call us and give you appropriate referrals if wanted. We’re here to listen and to help.
