Talk on your terms.
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, and stress as a teenager, and you probably have more questions 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 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.

Grades shouldn’t determine your self-worthGrades are an important thing for us as students because they determine if we pass or fail and they make or break post-secondary applications. However, they should never affect how we feel about ourselves.
Is it necessary for me to cover my self harm cuts/scars?We believe that you should do whatever you are most comfortable with; it's a personal preference.
Do you hope for a brighter future?The future can be a scary and exciting thing to think about. If you ever need to chat about how things are going and your thoughts on the future ConnecTeen is here for you.
