Contact a suicide hotline in Alberta, Canada for free support

Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone. They are more common than you might think, which is why there are 12 suicide hotlines (or helplines and crisis lines) in Alberta, Canada that can offer help to anyone struggling with feeling suicidal. Suicidal thoughts might involve:

  • Feeling as though your friends and family would be better off without you
  • Feeling a deep sense of loneliness or isolation
  • Having urges to hurt yourself
  • Feeling like you wouldn't be missed if you were gone
  • Thinking about killing yourself
  • Feeling or thinking you are worthless
  • Thinking you're going to feel this way forever
  • Looking up information about how to kill yourself

When you're suicidal, you're going through an emotional crisis. Being in crisis mode can give rise to intense emotions that are difficult to process. You may be overwhelmed and want nothing more than for the pain to end. It may not seem like it, but things can get better.

It's important to know that how you're feeling is normal and that you are not alone. There are trained crisis line volunteers in Alberta, Canada who will listen to you and support you. Speaking to a compassionate volunteer may give you that extra bit of hope that you need to keep going.

For free and confidential support with suicide, consider contacting a hotline in Alberta, Canada today.
