“It’s important to support Distress Centre because of the number of suicide calls they respond to. We are glad to know the crisis line is there for someone else’s son or daughter… any time day or night. Not everyone has someone they can talk to and who will listen to them when the pain is overwhelming. Thank you Distress Centre.” – Parents who lost their daughter to suicide.

We know you have a choice in giving. When you donate to Distress Centre you are helping Calgary’s most vulnerable.

Because our all of our services are free your donation goes to support our 24/7 crisis services.

We know that times are really tough for thousands of Calgarians because each month we see a consistent increase in the number of people reaching out for support.  We respond to over 100,000 calls, emails, chats and texts every year.

IT FEELS GOOD!
