Thanks Katharine! Got them added :heart:

Hey @scot can we get this stickied to the top of the channel so it doesn’t get lost after the numbers are in place

It should be pinned but I noticed there is a pin setting that drops it from pins if you read the whole thing…
@scot Is there a way to perma-pin?

In British Columbia you can also speak to a nurse by calling 811. You can also have the option of speaking to a pharmacist if you have questions about drug interactions

Is there any resources such as these for the U.S. (I only saw 911)?

…considering I live in the U.S…
I really should have noticed we were missing the US ones.


I’m updating the list soon with the link @SuppaDev posted (for some reason I somehow missed it so I never updated it back in August, sorry about that!).

And it has some numbers for the US that’s actually listed out by state, as well. So give me like 5 minutes and it should be updated!

It’s not really a helpline as such… But I found a suicide forum. A community based around suicidal ideation, and support.

Responding mostly to remind myself to update this later. :sweat_smile:

Figured if I actually RESPOND SAYING I WANT TO UPDATE IT, I’ll actually remember.
