Life can be challenging. School, work, family, and personal struggles can all have an impact on our mental wellness. There are supports available.
If you or somebody you know is in crisis, call the BC Crisis Line at 1.800.SUICIDE or 1.800.784.2433 or the KU-US Crisis Line (24 hour phone support for Indigenous people in BC) at 1.800.588.8717.
Early Alert Referral
If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, academics, or other issues, you can use the Early Alert Referral Form to connect with a Learner Services staff member. They can help with next steps.
