Dos and Don’ts when using data from these reports

This report represents aggregated data collected from our interactions with confidential users of our services. This data reflects the outputs, not the outcomes, tracked in Distress Centre’s 211 and Crisis programs. The data may not be representative of the nonprofit sector and there are ways to use this data in helpful and unhelpful ways.

When using the data in this report:

  • Do use this data to start conversations with your key stakeholders, to explore and understand how the trends identified in this report may or may not be relevant in your context.
  • Do use this data to guide future investigations into trends.
  • Do use this data, in conjunction with other data sources, to conduct further research on a subject area.
  • Do remember that some services users contact us multiple times and all interactions on our crisis lines are confidential. We do not report on unique service users.
  • Do remember that this data is based on our interactions with service users and may not be representative of the broader sector.
  • Don’t interpret the volume of interactions as volume of service users.
  • Don’t interpret the data as being wholly representative of the sector, a sub-sector or a region.
  • Don’t use statistics from this data without the broader context of how the data was collected and its limitations.

Opportunities to Help

Our volunteer opportunities allow you to provide support in various ways, including over the phone and via chat, text, or email. We also provide extensive practical and ongoing training.

As Calgary’s only 24-hour crisis agency, we are often the first point of contact for those seeking help. Make a career out of making a difference!

Distress Centre is committed to furthering the field of social work, and we view practicum students as a great asset to our team.  Practicum opportunities exist year-round within the Crisis Line Program and Counselling Program, along with other opportunities.
