We understand that talking about your problems can be tough. Sometimes, it’s easier to write about what’s on your mind.
Ask Us Online is your place to write a question in one of our topic forums, and get a response from a counsellor. Other users can read the forum posts but they can’t reply to them.
We think it’s important to respond to posts within 3-4 days. This means we can only accept a certain number of posts each day. If you see a message saying that Ask Us Online is temporarily not accepting new posts, check back later to see if we’ve reopened. If you need to speak to a counsellor right away, please phone us anytime at 1-800-668-6868.
How do I post?

Look for the topic that's best for you. If you've never posted, you will have to create a profile first. If you've already created a profile, login with your username and password.
Note to first-time posters
Do not give away any personal information in your username. Other users can read the posts, and you don't want anyone to recognize which one is yours.
Fill us in
