Seeking Support

This course contains mature subject matter. The material includes difficult content such as child abuse, sexual assault, violence, and death. It may be emotionally triggering to some and we encourage those who need support to seek local resources.

If you or someone you know are in need of support, contact the Canada Suicide Prevention Service (1-833-456-4566), Hope for Wellness Helpline (1-855-242-3310) or 1-866-APPELLE (Quebec residents), which offer 24/7 support. 

A national crisis line has been set up to provide support for former Residential School students and those affected.

You can access emotional and crisis referral services by calling the 24-hour national crisis line: 1-866-925-4419. 

Within British Columbia, the KUU-US Crisis Line Society provides a First Nations and Indigenous-specific crisis line available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, toll-free from anywhere in British Columbia.

The KUU-US Crisis Line can be reached toll-free at 1-800-588-8717. Alternatively, you can call directly into the Youth Line at 250-723-2040 or the Adult Line at 250-723-4050, or online:
