Online Support

We understand that you may not be comfortable picking up the phone and calling so we encourage you to use our online chat.

Online Crisis Chat

Chat is available from 3pm – 10:00pm weekdays and from noon-10:00pm on weekends.

You can access it on the top right corner of every page.

ConnecTeen Online Chat

Is available from 3:00pm – 10:00pm weekdays and noon-10:00pm on weekends at www.CalgaryConnecTeen.com

Face-to-face support

Not all problems can be solved over the phone. In fact, a call is often just the first step in overcoming crisis. To help with more complex issues, our professional crisis counsellors provide free counselling for individuals, couples and families.

Please note that counselling is not a 24 hour service. Walk-in appointments are available weekdays from 1:00pm – 4:00pm, or you can submit an intake to book an appointment.

To get started, call our crisis line at 403-266-HELP (4357) and ask for an intake to counselling or use the online intake form via the button below.

Please note: The problem we were experiencing with our online intake form has been resolved, but if you got a failure message when you tried to submit an online intake recently, you will need to resubmit it. We apologize for the inconvenience.
