You may feel alone, burdensome, or isolated from your friends and family. In Manitoba, Canada there are 2 helplines you can contact for support whenever you feel:

  • That you are struggling to cope with the unpredictable or disabling aspects of your illness.

  • Worried about how you’ll look after your family when you are sick, you lose your job, or become disabled.
  • Shame and sadness about becoming a burden to others.
  • That your medical condition is having a negative impact on your mental health and wellbeing.
  • That life isn’t worth living, given the limitations and pain associated with your medical condition.
