Counselling can be incredibly useful.  But sometimes we need immediate assistance.  At other times, we need a bit of information or a strategy we can use on our own time.

 

If you are concerned about your safety or the safety of another person, please contact local crisis services.
If you or another person are in immediate danger, please call Emergency Services (911).
