Provided by the Government of British Columbia, Here2Talk is a free, confidential 24/7 counselling and community referral service that is available to all students currently registered with a BC post-secondary institution. Users can explore wellness resources, such as managing stress and anxiety, adapting to new challenges, maintaining healthy relationships with friends and family, and more. Students can also opt to receive weekly “healthy reminder” notifications. 

The service can be accessed the following ways: 

  • Students can speak to a counsellor by phone, toll free at 1.877.857.3397 or direct 604.642.5212. Students calling from outside Canada can dial 1.604.642.5212. (international calling charges may apply). While services are offered primarily in English, additional languages may be available upon request with the phone service.

  • Online and Chat Services: www.here2talk.ca (Online services are offered in French and English) 

  • Mobile App: Download Here2Talk from the App Store or Google Play 

Students can access the service as much as they want. Please note that as these sessions are offered as short-term single-term sessions, you will be connected with the first available counsellor and therefore may not be connected with the same counsellor that you may have spoken with in a previous session.  

Please note that Empower Me is still available to students enrolled in the LSU Health & Dental Plan. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at covidquestions@langara.ca.
