On Bell Let’s Talk Day, Together We Can Make a Difference
Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day, when Canadians open up and talk to each other about mental health, and now more than ever, every action counts.
The pandemic continues to be a very challenging time for many children, youth, young adults and families in our community, and it is more important than ever before that they know where to turn for help when they need it.
In Peel Region, young people and families can access free and confidential mental health services by visiting WhereToStart.ca or calling 905-451-4655.
Tangerine Walk-In Counselling is offering 45-minute phone and video sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Visit TangerineWalkIn.com or call 905-795-3530 to request an appointment.
In times of crisis, when immediate support is needed, EveryMind and CMHA Peel Dufferin’s 24/7 crisis response services are there to help.
Young people under 18 and families can call 416-410-8615, while youth over 16 and adults can call 905-278-9036 or 1-888-811-2222 (Caledon and Dufferin). Crisis workers are available to help any time of the day or night.
All of these services are free and confidential for residents of Peel, and support from Bell Let’s Talk help make them possible.
