It’s OK not to feel OK.

Moving and transitioning to a new life in Canada can be challenging. Many of us may feel sad, stressed, anxious, confused, scared or angry. These are normal and common responses to unexpected or stressful situations.

Here is a list of resources that are free, confidential, and available to you. Please make use of these when you are in distress or not feeling mentally well.

The blue text are links you can click, and when you call a helpline, you can receive direct support or be referred to the appropriate mental health professional.
