Important Launch: 9-8-8 Suicide Crisis Helpline

November 30, 2023

Today, Canada takes a step forward in mental wellness support with the launch of the 988 helpline – a 24/7/365 text/call line offering immediate, accessible help for suicide prevention and emotional distress.

FPWC is honoured to have played an advisory role in developing 988 and ensuring access to culturally appropriate support. Remember, no matter who you are or where you are, support is just a call or text away. Reach out to 9-8-8 anytime.
