Calls to crisis lines have doubled since Pope Francis arrived in Canada.
Indigenous Services Canada says its 24-hour support line is receiving calls from across the country.
A spokesperson says callers are displaying a range of emotions from healing after the Pope’s apology, for others it was triggering.
The National Indian Residential School Crisis Line received an average of 121 calls a day since January but the day
Francis apologized that number climbed to 277.
The Pontiff wraps up his Canadian visit today in Nunavut.
