About Talking Stick

Whether you’re going through a difficult time or in need of a safe place to feel heard, Talking Stick is an anonymous destination for Indigenous youth and adults to receive emotional comfort and support, 24/7. The Talking Stick app is a text-only chat platform powered by Indigenous Peer Advocates; real people who share your language, culture, and lived experiences. Peer Advocates are not crisis counsellors or healthcare professionals, they are Indigenous people who have been trained to listen with compassion, respect, and humility.
