text saying "Proud partner in" with a yellow circle and the numbers 9-8-8

St. Leonard’s Community Services is a proud partner in 9-8-8, Canada’s new helpline for anyone who is thinking about suicide or who is worried about someone they know. As a 9-8-8 partner, we are part of a network of local, provincial and territorial, and national crisis lines across the country whose responders take 9-8-8 calls and texts. There is no wrong way to ask for help – whether someone reaches out to 9-8-8 or our existing crisis line, someone will be there to give them the support they need. Reach out for help whenever you need it.
