What people say about our service

I can call and I’m not alone, and it’s nice to know that people care. I know I can count on the distress line to keep me safe.
I call distress line rather than 911 when I get anxious or if I’m having a panic attack because talking to someone helps me cope.
I phone the Distress Centre to work up the courage, and to get over the anxiety of going outside.
Thank you for your kindness and listening ability. I could not manage to stay positive without your help.
