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.

Need to Talk?We can connect you with a peer who understands your unique perspective and can help talk you though your issues.
YOUTH SUICIDEThe attention is not misplaced, as there is plenty to be concerned about. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24. Every year in Canada, an average of 294 youth die by suicide.
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 have a trusted adult in your life?It can be difficult when you don’t have a trusted adult in your life that you feel comfortable going to.
