  For over 50 years, Distress Centres has provided 24-hour support, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are the point of first contact for community individuals in crisis requiring emotional first aid. Our organization is the oldest front-line volunteer delivered crisis, emotional support and suicide prevention service agency in Canada.

We offer an around-the-clock response to those experience emotional distress or are in need of crisis intervention and/or suicide prevention, intervention or postvention. We also provide face-to-face support and counselling to those who have lost a loved on to suicide or homicide and are navigating the aftermath.

Distress Centres continues to expand, and our program participants & call volume increases each year. Distress Centres now answers more than 82,000+ calls annually, and is a pilot site for the recently launched National Suicide Hotline by Canadian Suicide Prevention Services.
