Info-Social 811: Who are we?
Info-Social 811 is a telephone consultation service that enables a caller to speak with a qualified social worker. The team’s professionals provide confidential advice to anonymous callers seeking reliable and appropriate answers in difficult situations. Callers are not obligated to disclose any personal information, but if they choose to do so, the information is kept confidential. The callers simply inform the psychosocial intervention professional about their preferences.
Info-Social 811 differs from a CLSC's psychosocial intake service (intake, analysis, orientation, referrals), since it operates 24/7 (outside the CLSC’s business hours) and offers only a one-time intervention. If care is required, the caller is referred to the CLSC’s psychosocial reception desk.
Info-Social 811 offers referrals to appropriate professionals, including crisis lines. Its employees work closely with crisis centres to respond rapidly, whenever necessary.

The Info-Social and Info-Santé 811 teams share a workspace. With psychosocial counsellors and nurses so close to one another, there are many opportunities for clinical exchange and complementary support in complex situations.
An interprofessional telephone line also allows for fluid communication among the province’s 16 regions to ensure that the public has access to resources within a specific region.
