A little about our Distress Line

Distress Centres’ trained volunteers provide telephone support for individuals experiencing emotional distress, marginalization, social isolation and who may require crisis intervention and suicide/family violence intervention services. For 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 600 trained volunteers, with the support of professional staff, respond to an incredibly wide variety of callers with an equally diverse range of emotional needs throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

Last year, Distress Centres 408 Help-Line responded to 87,524 calls, a 9% increase over 2014.
