    Last week Canada got a national mental health crisis line! There is little being said about it. But when you see people posting numbers please think to reply with the Canadian numbers. Some research suggests that if a person is transferred too many times or gets a number that isn't working they will see it as a "sign" and do something unhealthy.

    A number of people have been posting a toll free number today - but it's for the US so let's try to get the word out about theCanadian toll free number and resources!

    I have removed this from the portal page and unstickied it. The Mental Health Info tab at the top of the site is more prominent and accessible from all pages.
