How we can help

SATP’s Resource Page tools are available to the theatre community who experience sexual harassment, assault or abuse. We are working together to find the resources for our toolbox to cultivate and support cultural leadership in Saskatchewan. We continue to develop guides on how to navigate these systems to access the support that will be most useful to you.

If you know of another resource for our toolbox, please let us know and we would be happy to share with everyone. Please email any concerns, questions or comments to sask.theatre@gmail.com.

Finding Help Most of us go through life solving our day-to-day problems without needing help to cope with our feelings. But a severe illness, an accident or an emotional crisis can overwhelm us, at least temporarily, and suddenly we need help. In this section, you will find resources and tips on getting help when you need it most.

Are you in crisis? If you or someone you know is in crisis and needs immediate assistance: 

  • go to the nearest hospital
  • or call 911

Do you need medical advice? Contact your General Practitioner for a referral to a qualified mental health care professional.
