Crisis Lines

No problem is too small to call.

403.266.HELP (4357)

TTY (for the hearing impaired): 403.543.1967  

We are available to talk anytime – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Crisis doesn’t take time off, so neither do we. When you make a call to Distress Centre, you will always get an answer, an open mind and a caring ear.

If it's too hard to say out loud and you'd prefer to talk to about your problems with someone online, then our online chat or email support might be for you. Chat is available from 5pm-10pm daily and is accessed from our home page. Emails are responded to within 24-48 hours (not an immediate response) so if the issue is urgent, please call the crisis line. However, if you can wait for a response and would prefer to email, contact us at
