Contact a free depression hotline in British Columbia, Canada for confidential support

Depression can change the way you think, feel and behave. It can look different in different people, but depression is typically characterized by a persistent low mood. You might feel sad, unmotivated and even hopeless.

In British Columbia, Canada, there are 15 free hotlines that support people experiencing the symptoms of depression. If you notice these signs of depression, consider reaching out:

  • You don’t care for your hobbies or work
  • You feel guilty, and you loath yourself
  • You feel sad and about to cry all the time
  • You became irritable for no reason
  • You are unable to think
  • You wake up during the night or at dawn and cannot fall asleep again
  • Even the smallest tasks take too much effort
  • You find it difficult to socialize

Depression can be a response to a loss or great stress in your life. However, it can also happen for no obvious reason. Both experiences are fairly common but depression can make it feel like nobody will relate to what you're going through.

But helpline conuselors and volunteers in British Columbia, Canada have been trained to help people who are feeling depressed. They care about how you feel and they want to help.

If you're in British Columbia, Canada and struggling with feelings of depression, sadness or hopelessness – or just feel alone in what you're going through – consider contacting a helpline for free, confidential help today.
