Why Choose ConnecTeen?

ConnecTeen is Calgary’s first peer support helpline, connecting you with compassionate individuals of similar ages and backgrounds to help with anything on your mind.

When to Reach Out

Mental Health Concerns

Dealing with mental health problems like depression and anxiety can be tough. Speaking about these issues could illuminate a possible path forward, and we can help by giving you a space to speak.

Relationship Problems

We understand that relationship problems can feel overwhelming, whether they’re with family, friends, or partners. Speaking in a safe place can help you feel supported in these situations.

Bullying & Harassment

Bullying and harassment can be severely damaging to your mental health. 

We provide a safe space for you to talk about your experiences so that you feel supported through this difficult situation. 

You Need to Talk

No matter what’s on your mind, our peer volunteers and counsellors are here to help. From problems at home or school to navigating complex personal concerns, we’re here to help.
