811 for Mental Health & Addictions Support
As of May 2nd, 2022, the Provincial Mental Health Crisis Line service is now provided by the Provincial HealthLine or 811.
Anyone in need of mental health crisis response or mental health and addictions support can dial 811, day or night, to speak with a registered nurse who is a trained crisis intervener. When dialing 811, individuals can self-select they are experiencing a crisis and will have their call answered immediately by a health care navigator who will then connect them with a registered nurse.
Please ensure all references to the Mental Health Crisis Line are immediately updated from websites, voicemails, printed material, etc. and replaced with “If you are experiencing a mental health and/or addictions crisis, need support, or health information, please contact 811 to speak with a registered nurse trained in crisis intervention.”
