Worried? Overwhelmed? Lonely? Isolated? Or just need someone to talk to?

You don't have to be in a crisis to call.

Telecare Distress Line is a free 24 hour, 7 days a week, anonymous, and confidential distress line serving Simcoe County and area. Specially trained volunteers listen without judgment while acknowledging and supporting the caller.  If necessary, community referrals are offered for extra support.

Call us at 705-325-9534 or 705-726-7922.

We're here. We listen. We care.

Helping to make the community Suicide-Safer...

Telecare volunteers participate in SafeTALK and ASIST training to keep us willing, ready, and able to speak with community members who may be thinking of suicide. If these thoughts are bothering you, please do give us a call. We are here to listen, to hear your story, and to connect you with professional assistance if you need it.

Telecare Distress Line staff and volunteers also work to make our community suicide-safer by offering the Living Works certificate courses in suicide prevention, SafeTALK, and ASIST, to interested community members.

Thinking of Getting Involved with Telecare?

Telecare Distress Line is always looking for new volunteers to help provide this valuable service to the community. Volunteers help by spending time on the phone lines, as members of our volunteer Board of Directors, with fundraising, and with other special events. 

Thank You to our Sponsors

It costs approximately $10 per hour to keep our 24/7 distress line up and running. Every dollar donated to Telecare from our supporters goes directly to ensure the ongoing functioning of our lines.
