Canada Suicide Prevention

Connecting local distress centre professionals together as a virtual national suicide helpline

We all share a commitment to operating best practices in suicide practices, methods and a common set of core values to ensure we help those in need.

CSC members have decades of experience in providing distress and suicide prevention support to people all ages in need across Canada.


Our Approach

This service is available across Canada via toll-free phone, or text in English. Our toll-free phone service is also available in French. This means anyone in Canada that is thinking about, is or has been affected by suicide, can reach out across a variety of media, and feel supported 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Anyone can have suicidal thoughts for a number of reasons. CSPS offers a barrier-free, non-judgmental space with supportive and responsive responders. We’re here so anyone thinking about suicide feels comfortable enough to reach out for support.

Stronger Together:
As a nationally available, regionally delivered service, CSPS provides anyone in Canada thinking of, or affected by suicide with reliable and innovative support. We use our collective strengths, local knowledge, resources, and technology to support the needs of all people in Canada. Our highly trained, committed and capable responders leverage our unique Canadian culture, attitudes and values, providing a network of support from coast to coast.
