No problem is too big or too small
ConnecTeen is a confidential peer support service for youth in Calgary and area.We are a program of Distress Centre. Being a teen can be tough. You have more independence – responsibility- stress and you probably have more questions than before too.
We know there are some things you can’t talk to an adult about and there’s probably a lot of things your friends don’t get about you. We can connect you with a peer who understands your unique situation and can help talk you though your issues. We don’t judge. We are here to listen. Our service is confidential and anonymous so no one needs to know you contacted us.
If you ever have a question, a problem or just need someone to talk to, give us a call, drop us an email, send us a text or chat with us online.

NumbersSchool may be extremely important but one thing that I have learned through the years of struggle and stress, is that sometimes putting the books away and hanging out with friends helps me reach my potential even more than studying.
I’m having thoughts of suicide and don’t know what to do.Sometimes it can feel like you’re stuck in a black hole and you’re not sure if you will ever get out of it. We want to remind you that it is possible to get out of it.
Do you ever think about how your actions affect others?If you are having concerns about how your actions might have affected others contact us at ConnecTeen to talk it out. Support is available 24/7.
