We, at Distress Centre, believe what we do makes the world a better place. We help change the mental health sector through the power of compassionate service and connection to community resources. We are a centralized hub that connects people to the help they need, offer 24/7 wellness support, mental health education, and move Albertans from crisis into stability.
For over 50 years, Distress Centre has provided empathetic, accessible and resiliency-based services focused on intervention and prevention. We are proud to be a leader in mental health and wellness support for Calgary and area, Southern Alberta and across Canada.
In 2022, Distress Centre responded to 144,958 contacts
For many teens and adults, Distress Centre is one of the first organizations they connect with, to access the vital resources they need to maintain and improve their overall well-being. We deliver and evolve our services, based upon the needs of our clients.
We know our clients lean on many services in our community, beyond the programs available at Distress Centre. Therefore, we work collaboratively with other community organizations, municipal services, and local and provincial governments to ensure Calgarians are connected and receiving the right health, social and government resources they need, when they need it.
