ONLINE MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Consult the site directly to determine if a mental health service or search tool suits your needs.
Online support is not necessarily a replacement for the services of a licensed physician or mental health professional and is not suitable for urgent or emergency situations. Persons in crisis who reside in the Toronto area can connect to emergency health services using 911 or a crisis line.
