Virtual Mental Health Supports for Victims of Family or Sexual Violence

Maintaining your mental health during a crisis, whether it’s a global pandemic or a more local challenge, is key to surviving and thriving once the panic has passed. The Canadian Mental Health Association offers a Mental Health Check-In service to help you assess where you are and what help you might need during these difficult times.

The Ending Violence Association of B.C. provides victim service, violence counselling, and multicultural outreach programs, as well as centres for sexual/gender-based violence. The site offers links to essential anti-violence programs, sorted by region so you can find a service near you.

Additional services include:

Here2Talk is a newly announced program from the B.C. government, with online resources and professional counsellors available to help with a wide range of current concerns, like anxiety, abuse, balance, stress, and more. All calls, chats, and conversations are strictly confidential and accessible via the website, phone, or smartphone app. No issue is too big or too small to discuss.


Stay safe, observe the best practices, and help Canada overcome this pandemic.
