LGBTQ2 Support Lines

We will make sure that LGBTQ2 people get the mental health support they need.

The challenges that LGBTQ2 people face – from bullying and discrimination to isolation and alienation – are closely linked to their higher rates of mental health challenges, including an increased prevalence of suicide and suicide-related behaviour. To support more LGBTQ2 people in need, earlier this year we launched a pan-Canadian, 24/7 mental health crisis hotline.

To ensure that the community continues to be well-served by hotlines and other support services, we will move forward with an additional investment of $2 million a year to continue this work, including support lines that provide sexual education.
