All Residents Dealing with Flooding Can Use Farm Stress Line for Help

Released on July 5, 2014

Farmers, ranchers, or anyone dealing with the aftermath of flooding can use the government’s Farm Stress Line, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Confidential telephone counselling, support and referral services are available at 1-800-667-4442.

“Given the serious flooding situation in many areas of the province, we want to remind producers or anyone in Saskatchewan affected by flooding of this important service,” Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter said.  “We know that communities in the affected areas have a lot of work ahead of them as they assess the damage caused by flooding.  They need to know there are professionals who can help if stress levels get too high.”

Trained professionals respond to calls to the Farm Stress Line and can offer assistance by listening in a confidential, non-judgmental environment, and by connecting producers, and people affected by flooding with appropriate organizations or programs.

People can also call HealthLine at 811.

HealthLine is a confidential, 24-hour health information and support telephone line, staffed by experienced and specially-trained Registered Nurses, Registered Psychiatric Nurses and Social Workers. 

HealthLine staff can provide counselling, strategies to help people manage their situation, and direct them to appropriate community supports.
