The Society is creating a distress phone line to provide crisis support and referral assistance. This line will be available through a toll-free number sponsored by Northwestel, making it accessible throughout the territory and open for calls nightly from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Bell Let’s Talk funding will support screening and training of phone line volunteers, including the development of culturally sensitive training materials focused on the demographics of the territory in addition to Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).
