If you need help understanding mental health services available for your child, youth, young adult ages 1 to 24, or if you just need someone to talk to about your situation with your child who is experiencing mental health challenges, you can call the PLEO Helpline and speak to one of the family navigators.  They are parents themselves who have supported their own child with mental health challenges so they "get it".
This is a confidential, bilingual service. 
Hours are Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.
**If our family navigators are busy helping other parents with you call, please leave a message and we will call you back within one business day.
