Talking Stick: Indigenous peer support and community safety
Feeling stressed, anxious, or alone? Connect one-on-one with one of our peer advocates for culturally safe listening and emotional support, 24/7.
Need to open up about something you can’t share with friends or family? Talking Stick is always anonymous and judgement-free. Talking Stick is free to use and available to anyone on mobile (Android or iPhone) devices or desktop (computer). Simply open Talking Stick any time of day to start an anonymous chat with one of our available Indigenous peer advocates.
Peer advocates are not crisis counsellors or mental health professionals. They are Indigenous people from communities all over the province who are trained to listen with compassion and provide understanding and support.
