12 Days of Resources: #1 Good2Talk

Day One of our 12 Days of Resources!

We know the holidays can be a difficult time for some, so we wanted to make this time of year a bit easier by providing you with a wide range of helpful resources. Follow us each day leading up to Dec. 25, for 12 blogs that cover a range of helplines and services you can access if you need to talk to someone and/or if you’re in crisis. Share with others if you know someone that might need these links as well.

With exams in full swing we thought it would be a great time to highlight a crisis line service for post-secondary students! Good2Talk 1-866-925-5454 or connect through 2-1-1.

Post-secondary students go through a lot of stress during the school year. Sometimes it feels like you can’t talk about it or share with others if there are struggles. Good2Talk can support students with a wide range of issues that may be impacting their mental health and well-being, including: depression, anxiety, substance abuse, academic stress, personal or family relationships, loneliness, financial concerns and other challenges facing students transitioning to post-secondary.

Good2Talk is a free, confidential helpline providing professional counselling and information and referrals for mental health, addictions and well-being to post-secondary students (ages 17-25) in Ontario, 24/7/365.

By calling Good2Talk, students can receive information and referrals about services and supports for mental health, addictions and well-being on and off campus or speak anonymously with a professional counsellor.

For those of you still in high school feel free to reach out to Kids Help Phone 1-800-668-6868.

Kids Help Phone is Canada's only national 24-hour, bilingual and anonymous phone counselling, web counselling and referral service for children and youth. Confidential and anonymous so you don’t even have to tell them your name. They have a live chat if you would rather use that but they only run from 6 pm to 2 am.
