How We've Helped
“The Distress Centre is my life-line. I don’t know where I’d be or what would happen if you weren’t there to call.”
We don't share names to maintain high privacy standards.
TeleCheck is our outbound call program that supports isolated seniors, people struggling with their mental health, caregivers, Alzheimer’s patients, clients awaiting mental health services, or people needing additional community mental health support.
We’re available to speak with your club, class, or groups about the services provided by Distress Centre Halton, or to teach courses on active listening skills and mental health in general.
