Crisis Line Awareness Week: March 23-29, 2014
Provincial funding has been assured through March 31, 2015, for the 1800SUICIDE (1.800.748.2433) and 310Mental Health Support (310.6789) phone lines. These are networks that enhance access to 24-hour BC crisis lines through easy to remember, toll-free numbers and routing technology that directs calls to the nearest crisis line network partner. This cost-effective service is not only life-saving, it decreases demand on overburdened police, ambulance and hospital resources. In fact, efforts to replicate the success of these networks are currently underway at a national level across Canada.
