Crisis Services/Warmlines

What is a Warmline? Warmlines are operated by peers, people with personal lived experience that provide support to others and demonstrate that recovery is possible. They listen without judgment and use their training and own experiences to help prevent a mental health crisis. All warmlines are non-emergency sources of support.
