BC Gambling Support Line: 1-888-795-6111
Call this number 24/7 if you are in crisis and need gambling support. They are there to listen. They can also provide you with supports and are another way to access my services. I will respond to a message or email within 24 hours (usually less) but I am not the best person to contact when you are in crisis. The Gambling Support Line is always there to talk to, in the moment. Interpretation in 160 languages is available.
