ABOUT OUR HELPLINE
On On March 14, 2014, the first Muslim Women Helpline was launched in Vancouver, Canada. NISA HELPLINE is a peer to peer counseling helpline available to Muslim Women of all ages. The toll-free number, 1-866-315 NISA (1-866-315-6472), is accessible anywhere in North America, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When you call the toll-free number you will be directly connected to a Helpline volunteer. These volunteers have had extensive training in peer to peer counseling, depression, anxiety, stress and many other conditions. They also received special training related to issues pertaining to our callers.
Passionate about helping other Women? Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.
Since 2014, our trained counselors have answered over 10,000 calls.
