How does HealthLine 811 work?
When you call HealthLine 811, a licensed healthcare professional will give you options and information to help you with health or mental health and addictions-related questions or concerns. You will be able to discuss your concerns in a safe, caring and confidential manner.
A registered nurse will assess your symptoms and help you decide whether to treat your own symptoms, go to a clinic, see your primary health care provider or access emergency medical care, if necessary.
HealthLine 811 also provides mental health and addictions support. HealthLine 811's registered psychiatric nurses and registered social workers can offer crisis support, advice to help you manage your situation and connections to resources in your community.
