Free Help and Crisis Resources (Winnipeg)

I sometimes find that people who come for a reading are dealing with issues that I am not qualified, nor would it be appropriate for me to address. Physical health issues, for instance, should be addressed with a doctor. I can talk about well being but I am not able to diagnose things. Similarly legal advice should be addressed with a lawyer and psychological issues with a reputable therapist.
I do sometimes suggest the following resources (in Winnipeg) that can be helpful:

  • Free Counselling - relationships, personal problems, abuse issues etc. (these can also refer you to other resources in turn if need be):

Domestic Violence Hotline: 1 877 977 0007
Emergency Shelter, Domestic abuse:  Osborne House (204) 942 3052
  • Addiction (both for the addict and for those affected):
