CSMC is in the process of resolving a number of technical issues connected to our Support Line

This, coupled with high demand, means it is taking more than a week to respond to calls and emails. If your query is urgent, please reach out to your local services first. You can find them on Ask Izzy, a helpful website that connects people who are in crisis with the services they need right now and nearby.
