Calls to Distress Centre Calgary's crisis line, 403.266.HELP (4357), are confidential and non-judgemental. They offer free 24-hour crisis intervention, professional counselling and referral services to help you overcome crisis.
Everyone has a different definition of crisis. But, no matter who you are or what you’re facing, they can help. Whether it’s the stress of a new job, struggling with drugs, getting over a recent break-up, or thoughts of suicide, their volunteers and professional staff are always there when you need someone to talk to.
