Our services are confidential, easy to access, non-judgmental and are totally free. Many people don´t feel comfortable sharing sensitive, confidential issues with family and friends. At times, they prefer to work through their options with an impartial listener. Some have nowhere to turn. And sometimes all that is needed is information about community resources. Remember your well-being and mental health is important to us. Spectra Helpline eases emotional suffering, and saves lives. Every day.
