St.Amant COVID-19 Community Wellness Line Launches

May 21, 2020

Operated by St.Amant counsellors and social workers, the St.Amant COVID-19 Community Wellness Line was developed in response to COVID-19 for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities, their families and support networks.

Understanding that at the best of times, people with disabilities access specialized resources and can have unique needs. Add in a pandemic with lots of uncertainty and changes to how many services operate, and we know that people along with their families and support networks may be experiencing higher levels of stress and anxiety.

Operators will provide supportive therapeutic listening, resource sharing, and clinical skills to assist in areas such as coping, de-escalation, and problem-solving, as appropriate. This is not a crisis line, however, if a caller is deemed to be at risk, the operator will provide emergency contact information.

The St.Amant COVID-19 Community Wellness Line is open 12 pm – 6 pm Monday through Thursday and is available to any Manitoban affected by a developmental disability. To access the line call: 204-258-7076 or 1-877-858-7076.

If you are looking for support outside of these hours, you can leave a message on the line for a callback, or check our resource page for additional information and supports.
