Cannabis and Mental Health

Cannabis and Mental Health

Many people use cannabis to deal with mental health issues. Cannabis stores in Canada are not legally allowed to make any medical claims regarding the use of cannabis. We can only speak to recreational consumption.
What we can do is share with our community some excellent local resources to support you! We have made this post with contacts for Crisis Lines and On-Going Supports (counseling, group/individual sessions, workshops and activities) in Toronto. ALL of these resources are free and available to anyone. Some services are for members of specific communities. Please share widely, as you never know who may need this!

Do you know any other free mental health resources for people in Toronto? Please let us know!
