MHWSS is excited to officially launch our text and web chat services so those experiencing family violence and abuse have another way to connect with us for support, information, safety planning, intake into shelter, and more!

People can now text 587-850-5885 to connect with one of our Crisis Intervention Workers. A web chat option is also available by visiting our newly redesigned website, at mhwss.ca.

Text line and web chat options will be available from 7AM to 11PM daily. Outside of these times, we ask people call our 24/7 help line at 403-529-1091.

As these services roll out, we will continually be evaluating the demand and use of them, so we can respond and adapt them to what will best fit the needs of our community.

A big thank you to MHWSS staff whose hard work and dedication have made the launching of our text line and web chat services possible!
