At Distress Centre, we are here to listen and support you with your needs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
No matter who you are or what you’re facing, we can help. Whether it’s the stress of a new job, struggling with drugs or getting over a recent break-up, our volunteers and professional staff are always there when you need someone to talk to. Calls are confidential and non-judgemental, and no issue is too small to talk about with us.
You can reach us 24 hours a day by calling our crisis line at 403-266-HELP (4357). Or, chat on-line with our volunteers between 5 pm - 10 pm MT, 7 days a week. Chat is accessed through the home page of www.distresscentre.com. When the green light is lit, chat is available.
If you'd prefer to receive information or support via email, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails are not monitored 24 hours a day, however all emails are responded to within 24 - 48 hours. If the issue is urgent, please call our crisis line for an immediate response.
Being a teen can be tough. If you ever have a question, a problem or just need someone to talk to, our ConnecTeen youth volunteers are here to help. To speak directly with a youth peer, call 403-264-TEEN (8336) or visit www.CalgaryConnecTeen.com to chat on-line between 5 pm – 10 pm MT, 7 days a week. Or, e-mail ConnecTeen. Emails will receive a response within 24 - 48 hours, so this is best when the question is not urgent and no one is in danger.
