Naseeha Youth Helpline – Media Statement


TORONTO, July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

  • We share our deepest condolences with the families, friends and communities involved. We pray for a full and speedy recovery for those affected.   
  • We likewise share in the pain and the anguish of the people of Toronto, Canada.

  • Mental illness affects people of all ages, education, income levels, cultures and religions.

  • That the suspect appears to have suffered from severe mental health challenges should serve as a wake-up call to legislators across this great country – much more needs to be done to support individuals, families, health care providers and other community institutions with a view to preventing such outcomes.

  • As always, our peer support helplines remain open to those who are in need. Our counsellors may be reached Monday to Friday from 3PM EST to 9PM EST at 1-866-NASEEHA.
