Distress Centres of Toronto

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Distress Centres of Toronto

Distress Centres is the oldest suicide prevention agency in Canada. Through a team of highly trained volunteers, they deliver mental health support services and provide high impact crisis intervention by telephone, online, and text. Distress Centres clients are facing increasingly complex mental health challenges. As a result, Distress Centres is incorporating Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), a leading psychotherapeutic approach, into their treatment model.
