2SLGBTQ+ PEER SUPPORT & RESOURCE LINE
Please note that the support line will be closed from Monday, January 1st to Thursday, January 4th.
You Matter is a non-crisis peer support and resource line for 2SLGBTQ+ community members in Calgary, run by Calgary Outlink. The support line launched on September 6th, 2022, and is operated by Outlink volunteers. You can call about anything you’re looking for support with, including identity, relationships, coming out, transitioning, community, resources, and more!
The number is (587) 800-4121.
The hours of operation are Monday - Thursday, 5:00 - 9:00 PM.
The support line can be accessed by phone, text, or through the chat window at the bottom of our website.
The line is open to callers of any age and identity who are looking for support or resources.
Please note that this support line is a pilot project and is volunteer-run. Depending on volunteer availability and how busy the line is, you may need to call back later or on another day if your call isn't answered. Because this is a pilot project, the hours of operation may change at any time. Any changes to the line will be communicated here.
As stated above, this is a non-crisis peer support line. If you're experiencing a crisis, please reach out to the crisis support lines below.
