First Nations and Inuit Hope for Wellness Help Line

The Hope for Wellness Help Line offers immediate help to all Indigenous peoples across Canada.

It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer:

  • counselling
  • crisis intervention

Call the toll-free Help Line at 1-855-242-3310 or connect to the online chat.

When you access the First Nations and Inuit Hope for Wellness Help Line online counselling service you will leave the Government of Canada website and access anonymous counselling services on a website hosted by the same Indigenous service provider that operates the Hope for Wellness Help Line.

Experienced and culturally competent Help Line counsellors can help if you:

  • want to talk
  • are distressed
  • have strong emotional reactions
  • may be triggered by painful memories

If asked, counsellors can work with you to find other wellness supports that are accessible near you.
Telephone and online counselling are available in English and French. On request, telephone counselling is also available in:

  • Cree
  • Ojibway
  • Inuktitut
