Distress Centre Halton

For over 47 years, Distress Centre Halton (DCH), has been providing emotional support, crisis intervention and suicide prevention to our Halton communities. Known as Halton’s Help Line – we have been supporting our community with the significant mental health challenges that have increased due to COVID with our inbound Distress Lines and our outbound program, TeleCheck. Since April 2020, when our community faced the uncertainty, confusion, changes, and fears of the pandemic, DCH has provided over 33,000 compassionate, caring and supportive connections in the community. This free and confidential service is available to every single person, from students to seniors. Our youngest caller has been 9 years old and our oldest, in their 90’s
