**** NSHA Media Release
Mental Health support for our communities
We are very sorry to hear of the horrific events that happened in our communities.
Our thoughts are with everyone who is affected, and our prayers are with the families who lost someone.
The pain and trauma are difficult to imagine.
We are here to help, as individuals and as the NSHA Mental Health and Addictions Program.
Our clinicians are standing by in all parts of the province to provide any support needed to meet the needs of children, youth, adults, and families.
We provide care and support over the phone, by video conferencing platforms, and if an individual’s needs require to meet in person, we can arrange it.
The Provincial Mental Health Crisis Line is available for you or someone you are concerned about 24/7, by calling toll-free 1-888-429-8167.
If you would like to self-refer to our Community Mental Health and Addictions clinics, Withdrawal Management Services, or Opioid Replacement and Treatment Program, call (toll-free) 1-855-922-1122, weekdays 8:30 to 4:30*. *This line has voicemail only evenings, weekends, and statutory holidays.
A Kids Help Phone counsellor is available 24/7 at 1-800-668-6868.
If you have mental health or addiction-related concern for yourself or someone else, please call us so that we may help guide you in what steps to take next.
