Distress Centre Niagara proudly provides emotional support, crisis/suicide prevention and intervention for anyone in need in the Niagara Region. We are able to offer this service through the support of United Way Niagara, private donations and the Niagara community at large.  

We encourage those seeking support from outside the Niagara Region to utilize services in their community. 

Ontario Online Text and Chat Crisis Services is available between the hours of 2pm and 2am EST.  Text support is provided by texting the word SUPPORT to 258258 from your mobile device.  Chat support is provided by using the LOOKING FOR SUPPORT tab found at

Alternatively, if you are seeking to speak with someone directly through telephone services, distress and crisis resources across Ontario can be found by contacting Ontario 211 services at www.211ontario.ca  or selecting resources under the get help tab found at www.dcontario.org.

We thank our Niagara community for their ongoing support of Distress Centre Niagara and for allowing our responders the privilege of sharing in the lives of so many Niagara residents.
